Spring Festival “Iki” 2017
18 March – 9 April 2017
Located in an upscale residential area of Shirokanedai, Happo-en is not just a reputed wedding venue. The estate offers a pleasant and quiet Japanese atmosphere, excellent for taking a walk, drinking matcha tea or dining, thanks to its spacious Japanese garden dating from the 17th century.
In spring, the landscaped garden is tinted in delicate shades of whitish pink with cherry blossoms. In this natural setting, Happo’en organizes a variety of activities for “o-hanami” (cherry blossom viewing), such as dining, dancing and centuries-old arts (the tea ceremony and the art of incense).
*Activities will be conducted in the Japanese language.
