News & Events

The main purpose of Yume Japanese Gardens is to put visitors in touch with rich layers of Japanese spirit and culture. As the Gardens mature and growing resources permit, we will be scheduling varied cultural events, festivals, and workshops for members and visitors, ranging from the tea ceremony to exhibits and classes of Japanese flower arranging (ikebana), and calligraphy.

Other offerings will include performances of music on classical Japanese instruments and dancing by performers in traditional dress. And throughout the year there will be opportunities to celebrate calendar events such as Children’s Day, a Japanese national holiday falling on May 5, autumn moon viewing, and the New Year.
