Published on Oct 23, 2022

Don’t miss the opportunity to see this extraordinary selection of authentic, vintage kimono. Wear your new kimono for selfies with the Japanese garden and its beautiful Niko-an teahouse as your backdrop. And then take it home, either to enjoy as a unique garment or display as a striking work of art!

The sale athe Stororrier Steqarns Japanese Garden is on Sunday, October 23, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Garden admission will be deducted from every sale over $50.

The Takara-ten Garden Gift Shop will also be open and is stocked with beautiful ceramics, paintings, lacquerware, prints and decorative papers – perfect gifts for the approaching holiday season.

The patterns and colors of the fabric used to make a kimono have different meanings. Red, for example, is said to signify youthful glamour, so is suitable for young women. Pictures of the “Three Friends of Winter” – pine tree, plum tree and bamboo – are auspicious as they symbolize longevity, perseverance and renewal. And the popular bird, the crane, is a symbol of long life and good fortune.

All sales will benefit the garden for the coming year.

Walk-ins are welcome or you may register with a discount on admission at the link below:


It happens at Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden, 270 Arlington Drive in Pasadena.
