Spring is one of the most inspiring times to visit the beautifully landscaped Japanese Garden.

Mark your calendar for the Spring Festival in the Japanese Garden, April 22-23.

Stroll the beautifully-landscaped Japanese Garden as you hear the rhythmic beating of the Don Doko taiko drummers in the distance and the haunting melodies played on the koto, the national instrument of Japan. Marvel as you watch the graceful Sakura dancers, the deft use of Japanese swords and demonstrations of Genjikai karate, Tai Chi and Qi Gong. Participate in the tea ceremony, peruse the bonsai and ikebana exhibits, treat yourself to the Gong relaxation techniques, admire the works of watercolor artists, and shop among numerous vendors selling jewelry, artwork and gifts.

Children’s activities include kimono dress up; Japanese storytelling; origami, calligraphy, Japanese crafts and games; temporary tattoos; Japanese fish painting; and feeding the koi fish.

Enjoy culinary delights in the food court and shop in the gift store that features Japanese tea sets, sake sets, toys and books.

Admission is $8 for adults, $4 for children 4-12 and free for children under 4.

The Fort Worth Botanic Garden is at 3220 Botanic Garden Blvd.
