Japanese Garden Walk: Shibamata Gardens

A stroll through prized garden grounds.

What will I learn in this class?
Lauded by a highly regarded American magazine, Tokyo’s Yamamoto-tei is a traditional Japanese house that features elements of Western architecture and a beautiful shoin-style garden (designed for admiring from within a building).

Participants take in the garden while enjoying matcha green tea and sweets. The tour also includes a visit to Shibamata Taishakuten, a temple famous for its sculptures and garden, and lunch at a Japanese restaurant more than a century old.

Who teaches this class?
