Japanese Cultural Programs

Take a sunset candlelight tour of the Seijaku-en Japanese Garden of Tranquility, learn The Way of Tea in Tennessee, or join in a rice-pounding celebration to ring in the New Year!

Memphis Botanic Garden offers a variety of year-round classes and special events in conjunction with the Japan-America Society of Tennessee.

Watch our calendar of events for these special cultural opportunities, or contact Akemi Sommer at asommer@memphis.edu for additional information on their schedule of programs.
