If you are missing Japan this Spring, join Kyoto insider Lee and Mori, his dog, who will teleport you to the Kyoto Gyoen National Garden, at the very centre of Japan's ancient capital.

On this “live” virtual flower hunting experience, Lee and Mori will bring you on a hunt to discover flowers that you can find only in Japan, as well as the Sakura and wildflowers. Starting at the main gate of the Kyoto Imperial Palace (reserved solely for the Emperor of Japan), make your way through the quiet meadows of former aristocratic estates. Get close to the ground to examine wildflowers with a macro lens and learn how some flowers can be used in traditional medicine, and the resources you can use to identify plants yourself.

Grab the kids and join us on this is a great experience where you will get a chance to ask Lee and Mori questions about florals, botanicals, Japan and even Pokemon!
