The Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden, in partnership with the Japan Foundation, Los Angeles invite you to spend a memorable evening with Geisha from Kyoto, Japan. The geisha tradition has endured through centuries, evolving and remaining one of the most treasured cultural features of Japan. While there are geisha elsewhere in the country, Kyoto is uniquely identified with geisha life. There, young women live and train for many years to become professional entertainers and social companions, highly skilled in the arts of conversation, music, dance, literature and tea ceremony. Join Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden for this unique opportunity to interact with geisha in the garden, and enjoy the beauty and artistry of Japan's most famous and historical entertainers as they perform for guests in the Niko-an Teahouse. Experience the essence of omotenashi, the abstract concept of both visible and invisible hospitality in Japanese culture. Local chef, Casey Felton, has dazzled guests with her new Hollywood restaurant Banh Oui, and will serve an exquisite selection of appetizers and desserts throughout the evening. Of course, there will be plenty of good wine and quality sake. There will also be our always popular Silent Auction featuring Japanese art treasures and gift certificates to local restaurants, shops and fun activities. Topping off the event will be opening night of an exciting new exhibition of abstract ink paintings by Japanese artist, Keiko Arai, in the En Gallery. Proceeds from this event will go to support the garden, its community outreach, and cultural and educational mission.  To RSVP, go to
