Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden is thrilled to be teaming up with the Lethbridge Public Library and the Bookmobile. During your visit to view the lights you can pick up a book to get comfy with this winter. For this Library themed night, we will be hosting Stories with Tad and Tomo. Our master storyteller, Tad Mitsui, is back with his good friend Tomo the Cat to share Japanese folktales and lore. These 20 minute stories will take place at: 6:00PM, 7:00PM & 8:00PM in the Bookmobile. Enjoy access to Bookmobile from 6:00PM to 8:30PM at the Henderson Lake parking lot directly beside the main footpath to the Japanese Garden.
And now more on the Winter Lights Festival...
The Winter Lights Festival
is back to bring light and joy to Southern Alberta through the darkest months!
Join us for opening night and experience the illumination of over 100,000+
lights decorating the beautiful Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden. Last year the festival
became Lethbridge's newest winter tradition and Nikka Yuko is thrilled to be
hosting this festival again from December 1st until February 3rd.
Stay warm in 4 Seasons
Home Comfort heating lounge. Shop for unique gift items at the Visitor’s Centre
Gift Shop. Enjoy a seasonal treat at the Sugar Shack Concession including the
Garden's signature blend of coffees and teas from Cupper's Coffee & Tea. All this and
much more at this year's Winter Lights Festival.
The Garden is particularly
fragile during the winter months because branches can break easily in the cold
temperature. The Garden's maintenance staff works incredibly hard on these
living pieces of art. We ask that all guests stay to paths and designated
areas, and to not touch or pull on vegetation.
The Garden allows guests to bring hot beverages and
concession treats into the Garden during the festival. However, we sincerely
ask that guests do not bring beverages or snacks onto the Pavilion deck because
the wood is susceptible to stains from even small spills.
Please be courteous so that all guests may enjoy the
Garden and the lights. Please no running on paths and be mindful of blocking
paths and areas.
Have a happy and joyful season. Arigato gozaimasu for
supporting Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden & The Winter Lights Festival.
