Due to low temperatures expected this weekend, the sake tastings and Taiko performance will take place inside the Ridgway Visitor Center. Trams to the Japanese Garden and tours of Teahouse Island will still operate as planned. 

Celebrate the beauty of spring and the season of
hanami by sipping sake under the cherry blossoms (sakura) in the Japanese Garden (Seiwa-en). Specialists will be on hand to guide your sake sampling adventure. Attendees will receive a keepsake tasting cup and will have the rare opportunity to explore the Japanese Garden's Teahouse Island. Five sake samples are included with admission. Additional sake and traditional Japanese cuisine will be available for purchase. St. Louis Osuwa Taiko performs live at 6 p.m.
