A walk-about event, guests were able to enjoy other Japanese featured culture besides just the cuisine. Drummers dazzled patrons with a musical performance, and at an origami station, you could learn to make origami of your choosing, while personalized calligraphy artwork was also created while you watched and was yours to take home.
