Shofuso Japanese House and Garden

Celebrate an early Japanese New Year this holiday season with lush ikebana flower arrangements, traditional Oshogatsu (Japanese New Year) decorations of pine, bamboo, and berries, and complimentary hot green tea while supplies last. Wear warm socks (we have slippers, too) so you can enjoy the spare beauty of the winter Japanese garden from the sun-soaked veranda. 

Thanks to Ikebana International Chapter #71 for the New Year’s flower arrangements and to volunteers Tamiko Laincz, Utsumi Sepich, and Taeko Shervin for their decorating prowess.

Looking for an easy way participate in the holiday fun at Shofuso and the Park Houses in West and East Fairmount Parkaround? The Fairmount Park Holly Trolley shuttles festive crowds among decorated Park Houses on Saturday, December 5 only. More info at
