Iaido and Lethbridge Community Taiko

Saturday, June 23, 2018

Time(s): 10:00AM - 6:00PM

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. 

Guide tours of the Garden occur at 10:00am, 2:00pm and 4:00pm and start from the main gate.
