Opening Weekend - Featuring an evening screening of Karate Kid

Saturday, May 05, 2018

Time(s): 10:00AM - 7:00PM

Join us at Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden as we open the gates for the 2018 season. The beauty and splendor of spring lasts only a moment, so be sure to visit while the apple trees are flowering and peonies are in bloom. There is also an incredible lineup of art, cultural activities and fun. 

The Garden will be hosting a kite decorating program. Decorate, fly and take home your very own Japanese kite. 

At 1pm, the Garden's master storyteller Tada Matsui will be sharing some traditional Japanese folk stories and he will be joined by the Garden’s maneki-neko (lucky greeting cat), Tomo the Cat. 

During the afternoon, take part in the Garden’s yukata dressing program. Try on the Garden’s incredible collection of yukata, kimono or happi jackets. This program is ideal for taking beautiful photos around the Garden. 

In the evening the Garden will be screening the original 1984 Karate Kid film. 

Guided tours will be offered at 10am, 2pm and 4pm.
