Sushi + Stroll is Back at Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens

Summer nights in South Florida are something special, especially when they are augmented with a cultural backdrop that can’t be beat! Morikami’s popular Sushi & Stroll series is back and better than ever, with a new picnicking area featuring local food trucks and popular Japanese snacks! Offering guests a tranquil, twilight stroll through the 16-acre gardens with memorable sunset views, this event has delighted visitors for 14 years, with the opportunity to enjoy the gardens during the slightly cooler evenings of the summer months and exhilarating taiko drumming performances by Fushu Daiko. The Cornell Café will be open, with a Pan-Asian menu to excite your palate, as well as premium Japanese sake and ice cold beer to refresh your taste buds. Guests can also indulge in shopping at the Museum Store, which features a wide variety of authentic Japanese items.

Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2017, Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens has been a center for Japanese art and culture in South Florida since opening in 1977. Morikami invites guests to discover South Florida’s history and its connection with Japan, and explore a series of six diverse gardens, each inspired by a different historical period and style of Japanese gardening.
