The Japanese Garden in Hammersmith Park is one of Hammersmith’s special connections to Japan, as it was created as part of the 1910 Japanese-British Exhibition. To celebrate the uniqueness of the park, the Japan Society and the Embassy of Japan are hosting a community picnic, to which all are invited!
Japanese sweets, packaged and baked goods will be available to purchase on the day, and we encourage you to pack a picnic and join us for an afternoon of family friendly fun. We’ll have a range of activities for all ages, including calligraphy, haiku and origami. The much loved taiko drums will be returning to the park this year, alongside a range of other performances!
