In addition to the floral displays, there will be taiko drumming on weekends and daily roaming guides stationed throughout the exhibition. Other attractions include ikebana demonstrations, meditation walks, haiku workshops and more. On October 15 and 16, during the Aki Matsuri Japanese Fall Celebration, visitors can participate in extra activities throughout the Botanical Garden in conjunction with the opening of the Judy and Michael Steinhardt Maple Collection, which features prized Japanese maples.
Families are also encouraged to take a stroll along the Poetry Walk to view poems that highlight the Japanese art of haiku and tanka. Special poetry workshops will also be a part of the events on October 15 and 16. And on October 8 and 15, people can also listen to traditional Japanese music while sipping a complimentary sake cocktail.
