New Year's Falconry
For samurai falconry was not only a pastime suitable for the warrior classes, it was also considered a rite to bring good luck.
An expert falconer will show traditional Japanese falconry in the gardens for the first time since being opened to the public. Make sure not to miss out on this opportunity to see a lesser seen aspect of samurai culture performed at the house and gardens of the Shimadzu family.
Performances from 11:00-11:20 and 14:00-14:20
