The Taiko Drummers are part of the celebration of the grand opening of the new Richard and Helen DeVos Japanese garden at the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. I also got a peek at the Japanese gardens and I can see why it’s taken four years of planning, another three years of construction and $22 million to make this happen. The 8 acre garden was designed by Japanese landscape designer Hoichi Kurisu and is well worth a visit. I feel so very lucky to have this treasure so close to home.
I’ll be back to take more photos of the Japanese garden, in the meantime, I thought you would enjoy photos from the performance tonight.
