Japanese Garden Festival

The Japanese Garden Festival returned to Normandale Community College on June 14.

The festival featured many authentic Japanese customs and groups, including the Kogen Taiko drummers, Sansei-Yonsei Kai Japanese dancers, Leo Hansen, a shakuhachi-Japanese flute musician, Japanese sword demonstrations by the Seiryuukan Dojo and Five Elements Martial Arts, and Japanese Archery demonstrations by MN Kyudo Renmei.

Traditional Japanese meals were served, and vendors from local boutiques and various Japanese community organizations were on site at this familyfriendly event.

Author Dave Kenney signed copies of his new book, Normandale Japanese Garden: Celebrating a Dream (released through Nodin Press), which is about the history of the Japanese Garden.
