National Cherry Blossom Festival Family Program
Zen Gardens is sold out.
Join us for our most meditative program yet! Zen gardens, like the one at Ryōan-ji, provide space for contemplation and represent nature in the abstract. Learn the history of Japan’s famous gardens, and then design and build your own.
Drinking morning tea,
The monk is peaceful,
The chrysanthemum blooms.
