Favorite Japanese Friendship Garden Memories:

  • From a string quartet to a classy jazz ensemble, to a fun party band complete with an after-party DJ, we’ve provided it all at this multifaceted property…

  • We’ve witnessed the most fun and intimate celebrations with only a handful of our couple’s favorite people…

  • Experienced maximum elegance at the top of the night that transformed to the rowdiest of dance floors by the end…

  • Our band surprised and delighted the guests when they went from watching a video clip of ‘Say a Little Prayer’ from My Best Friend’s Wedding and then the curtain opened up to reveal us as we took over the song...

  • And countless more touching and funny memories than we have time to share.


All of this magic happens because of the commitment that

Republic of Music and The Japanese Friendship Garden team has to our beloved clients.
