**POSTPONED- The Classics: Houston Japanese Garden & Dinner

Sunday, April 26, 2020 2 Iyar 5780

2:30 PM - 6:00 PMHermann Park (6000 Fannin St.)

This event has been postponed for to the fall.

Have a stroll through Houston’s Japanese Garden at Hermann Park with the Classics followed by a taste of Japan at an authentic Japanese restaurant. The Japanese Garden was designed by world-renowned landscape architect, Ken Nakajima. Natural materials are used, such as rock, wood, and plants, to give a feeling of serenity to this peaceful hideaway in Hermann Park with 5.5 acres of waterfalls, bridges, and stone paths that wander among crepe myrtles, azaleas, Japanese maples, dogwoods, and cherry trees.

The entrance to the Japanese Garden is located near the Pioneer Memorial obelisk, just off Molly Ann Smith Plaza (by the Heart of the Park). The closest parking lot is Lot A located off Sam Houston Monument circle. From Lot A, follow the granite path along the Jones Reflection Pool under the double alley of trees and you'll find the entrance just off the plaza with the obelisk (view map). The group will meet at the garden entrance at 2:30 p.m. Look for a sign that reads, “The Classics.”

There is no charge to enter the Houston Japanese Garden.

At approximately 4:30 p.m., following the garden stroll, the Classics will enjoy authentic Japanese cuisine (purchased individually) at Zen Japanese Izakaya (2015 South Shepherd Dr). Walking into Zen feels like entering a restaurant in Ginza, Tokyo. While there is no fee for this event, we are requesting RSVPs to plan accordingly.

Whether you plan to attend one or both parts of the afternoon, please RSVP online below or call 713.529.5771 to reserve your spot today.
