Go Fridays at Nikka Yuko

Dates & Times:

May 17, 2019


Experience the strategy of Go, an ancient game that is popular in Japan and East Asia. 

Every Friday Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden will set up our patio for board game enthusiasts of all ages to try their hand at Go. Rent a board game for $5/person and play it on our patio outside the Visitor's Centre. The rules are simple and our staff would love to teach you how to play! Admission to the garden is not necessary but can be purchased if you wish to bring the game inside the garden or take a tour before or after your game. 

Tea, coffee, or water are included - additional snacks may be purchased from our cafe.
