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.
