Special event: “Spring Fantasy Garden” A night time illumination at Okayama KorakuenActivity
See the new green foliage and flower petals of the Korakuen garden in their most splendid season. Why not even dress in kimono and enjoy this beautiful illumination which will take place for 11 days between April 26th and May 6th.
What is “Spring Fantasy Garden?”
It is a night time illumination event taking place in the grounds of the Okayama Korakuen garden.
As a special highlight for this year’s event, there will be a projection mapping taking place every day during the event period. Its theme will be “Momotaro,” one of Japan’s most popular folk tales, and it can be viewed seven times a day from 7 pm onwards at the Enyotei House which, originally built as a peaceful sanctuary for the domain lord, is located in the centre of the park.
There will also be various other events taking place.
You can try your hand at making papercut art inspired by the garden’s flowers, daruma dolls the size of your palm, or even a bracelet made with a traditional Japanese sanada himo cord. There will also be an opportunity to try on and walk through the garden in kimono.
On the Noh Stage there will be musical performances, which you can enjoy together with some of Okayama’s finest sakes on offer at the “Sake BAR.” Or, join our “GOOD DAY PICNIC” and savor a deli-box filled with Okayama’s delicious seasonal flavors in the garden’s picnic zone (from 11:00 to 18:00.)
We will also offer free entry to the park after 18:00 to everyone wearing kimono on the Saturday, which will be “Kimono Day.” We encourage as many people as possible to come in kimono to make this year’s Spring Fantasy Garden event extra special!
There will also be an illumination taking place simultaneously at Okayama Castle, which is within walking distance.
