Every year, I like to attend a few Japanese culture events around the Dallas/Fort Worth area, yesterday I visited the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens for the Japanese Spring Festival at the Japanese Gardens.
This year they had the usuals, lots of booths with arts and crafts around the zen garden. Origami booths, calligraphy, artisans, and Japanese carnival games. There were a few vendors selling accessories, hats, wall scrolls, and trinkets. Also a booth where people could try on a traditional Japanese kimono and take a picture.
Some of the main attractions were schools of martial arts, Japanese tea ceremony, dancing, and the taiko drummers. This year was also made possible by the Fort Worth Japanese Society, check out their facebook page for more up to date information on any upcoming events www.facebook.com/fwjsonline.
Also look forward to the Fall Festival that they put on at the gardens as well, lots of fun activities are usually in the works for that as well.
