Bunka, pronounced boon-kah, means culture in Japanese. As the garden is known as the “Gem of the South” the Nikka Yuko Bunka Centre will endeavour to engage the community and guests through cultural experiences and programs offered by the Society. The Bunka Centre will also provide space for the community to celebrate and gather for their own cultural purposes, events, and activities.
The Centre will be a hub for Henderson Lake users as a year-round space to enjoy, whether they are grabbing a coffee or tea from the café or immersing themselves in the interactive exhibits. In total, the
facility will include a dedicated exhibit space, two classroom/programming rooms, a café, and rentable spaces for meetings and community events, the largest with a capacity of 100 people.
