Yume Japanese Gardens opened in January 2013, and will be closed today for Thanksgiving. But starting tomorrow an exquisite, huge flower festival will take place there for 3 days. 50 arrangements in Japanese style ikebana from 5 schools will be on display.
The gardens are located just south of the Tucson Botanical Gardens on Alvernon Way. It is accessible by car and Sun Tran bus, route # 11. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily.
And Happy Thanksgiving to all. I’m really grateful for this beautiful, serene Japanese garden in Tucson, where we can all appreciate Japanese culture and landscaping. Check out the NEW gift shop with lovely gift items for the upcoming holiday season.
