Time： 17:30 – 21:00
Fee: 600 Yen (＋400Yen for 2nd floor)
Details: At the autumn foliage’s peak, Murin-an invites you to a unique lantern night, revealing anew the garden’s beauty and soothing charm.
In collaboration with light designer Nagamachi, the spotlights are set softly, lighting up the scenic points
of the garden, while the artisans who daily nurture and care for the Japanese garden are on site to elaborate on their work.
There will be both lectures on the gardens as well as free talk sessions with the gardeners. Having
received high acclaims for the garden lectures at the previous light-up event in May, there will be 3
guides per evening this time (15min each).
In the free sessions, there will not only be a skilled garden artisan, but also a young apprentice
attending. It will be a chance to talk freely about the gardeners’ work, the techniques and maintenance
methods they apply, or about episodes from their time as an apprentice.
This autumn we invite you to be part of a more personal and enriching autumn foliage night, a must-see
for both Japanese and foreign visitors.
