Japanese Garden Walk: Yokohama Sankeien

A walk through a traditional Japanese strolling garden.

What will I learn in this class?
Designed by Tomitaro (Sankei) Hara, a wealthy, Meiji-era businessman in the silk trade, this spacious garden features wonderful trails, ponds and waterfalls, as well as a number of historically significant buildings from across Japan, including a three-storied pagoda from an old Kyoto temple and a thatched-roof house from Shirakawago in Gifu Prefecture.

After a lunch at Yokohama’s bustling Chinatown, participants are free to explore the city.

Who teaches this class?
