Visit one of the largest Japanese gardens in North American for this Labor Day weekend tradition. Missouri Botanical Garden's Japanese Festival celebrates the history, culture and people of Japan through music, art, dance, food, exhibits and more. Origami displays, Bonsai and Ikebana demonstrations, ice sculpture, Gaku music, Kendo and Judo workshops, Dashi processions, Bon Odori dance and Japanese storytelling are among this festival's many attractions. Candlelight walks are also held in the evenings, and the garden is open to the public throughout the year.
