5 Morikami Holiday Experiences for the Person Who Has Everything 

We all know that person. She has everything already. He’s so hard to shop for.

But… they like to do things, go places and feel good supporting the arts. You’re in luck because we have just what you need to make them happy this holiday season. Here are 5 gift ideas for the person who just likes to have fun!

Dance with a lion at Oshogatsu. On Sunday, January 7, we will usher in 2018 with our Oshogatsu festival. Buy your special person a day filled with rice pounding, lion dancing, tea ceremonies, taiko drumming, sake tasting and outdoor beauty. Oshogatsu is 10 a.m.-5 p.m., rain or shine and also a great family gift coming in under $50 for 4 tickets to the event! Purchase here.
Bang a big drum with style. There is a method and practice behind taiko drumming, a form of Japanese performance and ancient communication. The performers at Morikami make it look easy, but is it really? If someone you love is up to the challenge, gift him or her a workshop to learn “The Way of Taiko” on January 28 or March 18.
Create like an artist. In addition to taiko drumming, we offer a series of workshops that immerse adults in various aspects of Japanese culture, from learning how to play the koto to learning the the art of haiku. If you have an art enthusiast on your list, buy them a workshop to try “The Art of Japanese Fabric Wrapping” on January 13. Know a sushi lover? Enroll them in our Basics of Sushi workshop.
Commune with Mother Nature. Sometimes, your friend needs some time away. When a plane ticket or cruise is just too much, gift them a walk among Japanese gardens instead. It’s close by, no waiting, and they can go as often as they’d like with a museum membership. A membership to Morikami comes with a number of nifty perks. For less than $100, a Dual Membership allows TWO people to join, receive discounts and bring their children or grandchildren for free.  Click here.
Bring a bit of Japan home. The Museum Store makes it easy for you to look like you traveled all the way to Miyazu to find the perfect gift. Nah. Just click here to give some cultural flair to their Christmas tree, add to their whimsical coffee mug collection or spice up their corporate suit with colorful peace cranes.

Happy Holidays from The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens!
