Celebrate Japanese arts, crafts and culture at the Japanese Garden Festival November 6 and 7, 2010, in Descanso Gardens, 1418 Descanso Drive, La Canada /Flintridge, California. Bonus: a performance by taiko drummers, special food for purchase and other fun.

It’s part of the American Horticultural Society’s reciprocal admissions program.
