A couple weeks ago, the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach, Fla., hosted a festival in honor of Japanese art and culture, complete with martial arts demonstrations, drumming performances, Japanese food, and a host of vendors selling everything from Kimono-inspired clothing to gorgeous bonzai. On Friday, March 14, the museum will be celebrating Howaitodai, or White Day, the Japanese counterpart to Valentine's Day in the West. Tickets are $25 ($10 for members) and include cocktails, appetizers, and a show by a theatrical Taiko drum group. Not in the mood for romance? On March 20 the museum hosts a night of violin and piano music with world-reknown musicians Shunsuke Sato and Tao Lin playing music by 19th-century Belgian composers; the $50 admission includes a champagne reception after the concert. For more information, log on to morikami.org or call the museum at 561-495-0233.
