GARDEN PARADISE: Sunset Stroll At Morikami Museum And Japanese Gardens

Spring into summer during Sunset Stroll at the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens on Thursday, April 18, from 5:30–8pm.

Enjoy a spectacular twilight procession through the Roji-en: Garden of the Drops of Dew, and explore the peaceful Yamato-kan, the Morikami’s original museum, during the annual after-hours event series.

Highlights will include the Sean Danconia Pop Surreal Art Show and Sale, Japanese calligraphy name fan creations, docent-led garden tours, Brewsaki beer and Niigata Selections sake tastings, and Asian-inspired cuisine by Ramen Lab Eatery, Kaminari Ramen, Kona Ice, and the Cornell Café.

There will also be live taiko drumming performances by Fushu Daiko and a “Harajuku meets Otaku” fashion show presented by OtakuFest in the museum’s theater.  The colorful world of Harajuku Fashion, born on the streets of Tokyo, is an artistic movement of self-expression that intersects with sub-trends like otaku fashion, celebrating a passion for anime (Japanese cartoons), manga (Japanese comic books), and all things pop culture.

Additional Sunset Stroll dates include May 23, June 13, and September 12. Each event will have its own theme.

Cost is $5 for members, and $10 for the general public. Tickets will be available for purchase online starting April 1, 2024.
