Reviewed:2020/01/25 Savory seven artful wonders in one hour!
This was an enjoyable taste of seven Japanese art forms seamlessly interwoven together in under an hour that at times it seems like one event with several sub-plots. The event highlights the tea...

The concept is great but this was just sad. The performance lasted barely 40 minutes. The seating is not tiered so if someone tall sits in front of you you will have to just enjoy the music. The...
