    Paint a Japanese Fan in the Uchiwa style.

    Uchiwa, a stiff, rounded fan. It is an indispensable item during Japanese summer. It is used not only for fanning, but also for repelling mosquitos and flies. It is also believed to have the power to ward off evil spirits and has been used in various forms and for various purposes, such as in the form of gunbai fan at Shinto rituals. Uchiwa fans come in two types: round fans and rhombic fans. It is said that this type of fans existed in China as early as 3 B.C. and were brought to Japan around the 6th-7th century.

  • Live Music / Fushu Daiko

    Enjoy Taiko drumming and Japanese flute in the Garden!

    Fushu Daiko is made up of many nationalities and backgrounds, yet we have been drawn together by the taiko. Through its vibrations, Fushu Daiko wishes to create a sense of connection in the hearts of those who feel the taiko’s beat.
