Matsue Delegation Visits New Orleans

We were pleased and honored to host the Mayor of Matuse, along with a delegation of civic leaders, at a ceremony held in their honor at the garden.  The exchange of gifts and toasts made the evening a very special one, which we will long remember.  The visit was part of a larger good will tour of America.  Here in New Orleans, it coincided with our annual Japan Fest.  Here are some pictures of the festivities featuring the taiko drummers outside the Museum of Art.  We conducted several guided tours of our garden during the Festival.
