Join us to kick off our year of Japanese events at the UC Botanical Garden in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Berkeley – Sakai sister city organization. Come meet the Mayors of both cities and enjoy a traditional tea ceremony, with exceptional tea, wine, and live koto performance. Following the tea ceremony will be a performance by the Murasaki Ensemble presenting contemporary music written for traditional chamber koto. Japanese koto has a unique sound which sets it apart from other instruments, a very pure sound which touches you from within your heart.
