For a rundown on all the scheduled events, going to http://peacethroughpeople.org/2013/08/schedule-for-2013-japanese-fall-festival/. Such a beautiful event. You just do not get the opportunity to see tea ceremonies or kimono fashion show everyday around the Ozarks. The Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden is a delightful place to visit and the Candlelight Walk is spectacular!
