Join us at Nikka Yuko
Japanese Garden for an incredible
array of art, culture and beauty. The Garden will be hosting Dave Rathnow of
Shin Ken Kai Dojo, located in Calgary, to demonstrate the martial art of iaido.
Watch the smooth control of the katana as it is drawn and sheathed, and learn about
the history of this unique Japanese art form.
At 3pm the Garden will host a
taiko drumming performance by Lethbridge Community Taiko Association. The
thunder of their drumming is sure to delight the whole family.
During the afternoon, the Garden's hosts and hostess will be running yukata
dressing. Guests are invited to try on a yukata, kimono or happi jacket.
