Celebrate Mother's Day in the most beautiful setting in the city! Nikka Yuko invites you to bring your mothers and families to the garden for a day of special events. We will be giving away Chrysanthemums to the first 100 guests.

Nikka Yuko will be hosting Nodate from 1-4PM in honour of Mother's Day. Experience this open-air tea service in our Prairie Grass area within the garden and taste our unique blend of matcha prepared in front of you by one of our hosts/hostesses. This is a ritual in many Japanese gardens and will be paired with traditional Japanese treats.

Minyo dancers will perform inside the garden from 3:30-4PM. These colourful and graceful Japanese folk dancers are a delight to watch and typically audience members are invited to learn a few of the steps.
