  • Was a wonderful experience. Had the tea ceremony explained and tasted some great Japanese tea and sweets made in the traditional way. Got to knee on the tatami mat. SO amazingly comfortable. The staff was friendly and very informative.
  • I've always dreamed of visiting Japan, but due to finances and fear of flying- it will never be-- but the Japanese Culture Festival was very close ! Taiko/Kodo Drums, Martial arts, Traditional dance and music troupes, even traditional tea ceremony.... and stalls with Ikebana, Calligraphy, and other activities. Definitely going again next year!
  • Absolutely beautiful place. Was here for a wedding and I think it turned out really nice. Plenty of great views near the river and Ojibway island and inside the center itself.
  • There is nothing here but a few cherry blossom trees and some fake looking statues... this place is supposed to be a sister facility to another Cultural Center that's in Japan. For something that's got history and importance like that it's a pretty sad location... I guess the thing that attracts most people to this area is there is a Teahouse located on the property I don't know if it's still in operation when we were there it was not
  • The gardens are beautiful in the springtime, and the Japanese that go there regularly and fun to chat with. They also hold weddings and festivals often with food, dance, and toys.
