The Japanese Garden will be reopening after its winter break on Sunday 31 March 2019.

On that day, you will discover the Japanese Garden in its bright spring clothing and have a chance to immerse yourself in Japanese culture again by attending various workshops.

On this particular day, we will be open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. (instead of 5 p.m.).

But for a good reason, as on that evening you will have a unique opportunity to attend the theatre concert on the theme of “Kojiki”, starting at 5.30 p.m. This ancient Japanese legend tells the story of how Japan came into being, the Shinto gods and the triumph of good over evil. The artists in the Kojiki are Grete Moortgat of the Belgian taiko (drum) group Feniks Taiko and a number of their members, Chieko Kojima of KODO and a number of members of the popular Japanese taiko (drum) group Bonten.

You can only attend the theatre concert if you buy a ticket, which will be available soon on this website. The ticket includes entry to the Japanese Garden on that day between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The concert itself will last one hour, i.e. until 6.30 p.m. The gates of the Japanese Garden will be opened again for ticket-holders from 5 p.m.

Normal price: 15 euro p.p.

Senior citizens 65+ and children aged 12 and under: 10 euro p.p.

Of course, if you wish to visit the Japanese Garden without attending the concert, normal rates apply.

 

It is also possible to buy a combi-ticket on the website of Feniks Taiko, and you can combine their joint concert with Bonten in the Zuiderpershuis in Antwerp on Friday 29 March 2019 with the Kojiki theatre concert in the Japanese Garden on 31 March. Tickets will be available on their website (more info to follow).
