Sushi & Stroll Summer Walks

We welcome guests on select Friday evenings (from 5:30-8:30pm) throughout the summer to experience and explore our Japanese gardens, cold drink in hand. Sip craft sake selections – some sweet, sparkling, creamy, or even in a can – that you might not find anywhere else in South Florida.

Visitors are also invited to indulge in Pan-Asian cuisine from Morikami’s Cornell Café (not included in admission price,) shop in the Museum Store and enjoy roaring taiko drum performances by Fushu Daiko at 6:30PM, 7:15PM and 8:00PM (additional $2, limited tickets available.)

Our Sake Station offers a variety of premium Japanese sake, many of which are exclusive to the event, though some may be available at select retailers in South Florida. Feel free to ask the Vine Connections staff more about the sake you are trying – they’d be delighted to give you a brief sake 101! Please note: Sake is not included with admission and range in price from $5–$12 depending on your selection.

Take in the sights and sounds of Roji-en at sunset – a rare treat! Sushi & Stroll is from 5:30 – 8:30pm and you won’t find a better view than Morikami Lake on a clear summer night. Try our mobile guided tour for a more in-depth experience of the gardens, or take a leisurely stroll along the one-mile path with a cool drink in hand.

Morikami is thrilled to welcome back South Florida’s original taiko drumming group, Fushu Daiko for three performances (6:30, 7:15 and 8:00pm). In building on the ancient art of Japanese drumming, Fushu Daiko aims to “create an exciting, powerful cross-cultural experience…to cross boundaries and connect cultures.” Please note: Taiko tickets are not included in the admission price, and are sold for an additional $2. A limited amount of Taiko tickets will be sold onsite on a first-come first served basis.
