Already home to a picturesque and peaceful Japanese garden, the Brisbane Botanical Gardens at Mt Coot-tha is ramping its cultural appreciation up a few notches. Visitors will do more than soak in the greenery-fuelled serenity from 10am on Sunday, August 18, courtesy of an entire day of Japanese-themed celebrations.

From rice cake making and calligraphy sessions to kokedama classes and taiko drum performances, the Gardens' Japanese Cultural Day will steep you in the sights, sounds, tastes and activities of Japan — like a good tea ceremony, which is also on the agenda.

Other highlights include make-your-own sushi classes, bonsai demonstrations, ikebana flower arranging, traditional Japanese music, martial arts displays, and tips on how to wear a kimono, plus craft and storytelling sessions for younger attendees. Food trucks will also be onsite, serving appropriate bites.

Entry is free and no tickets are necessary — except for the kokedama workshops, which cost $10 and require booking in advance.
