The Japanese Spring Festival invites guests to experience Japanese culture firsthand through interactive and immersive encounters including thundering performances of Taiko drumming by Fushu Daiko, Ikebana floral design workshops, traditional Japanese tea ceremonies, hands-on origami lessons and a Japanese Marketplace. A family-friendly event, the Japanese Spring Festival also offers a children’s corner featuring storytelling and arts and crafts.
New to this year’s festival is an authentic sushi demonstration and tasting sponsored by the Consulate-General of Japan in Miami. Chef Mitsutoshi Sekita, owner and head chef of Koume Japanese Restaurant in Plantation, will share insights about the centuries-old tradition of sushi and demonstrate its unique preparation. Following the display, guests will have the opportunity to taste the freshly made sushi.
