Lighting your way will be the bewitching radiance of glowing lanterns. Deepening the spell, evocative recorded Japanese folk melodies will accompany you, played on the koto (the 13-stringed national instrument of Japan), the shamisen, or Japanese lute, and the shakuhachi bamboo flute.
The magic materializes Friday, April 26 through Sunday, April 28, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm each night. Because this is our last major event of the Spring 2019 season, members of Yume may attend free.
Admission for non-members is $15 for adults and $5 for children three to 15. You may purchase non-refundable advance tickets online by clicking on “Events” at the top of any page of this website. A drop-down menu will appear; click on “Buy Tickets” and follow the instructions that you see.
For sale during these evenings will be traditional Japanese foods, such as octopus dumplings and curry plates, served by Tucson’s popular Takoyaki Balls food truck.
Parking for this event is restricted to the lot inside our main gate on North Alvernon Way and to East Justin Lane, one half block south of the Gardens. Non-resident curbside parking is NOT permitted anywhere along East Hampton Place, immediately north of Yume. If you park on a residential street, please be mindful not to block our neighbors’ driveways.
