Slow Day with CIBI

Sun February 25th @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm AEDT

Founders Meg and Zenta Tanaka and the CIBI team will be at Walsh Street for a slow day of homestyle Japanese food and philosophy. Sip on matcha while we demonstrate organic stone fruit drying in the courtyard sunshine, in the style of ume, Japanese sour plum. Join in the conversation, taste and learn!

CIBI is a lifestyle concept store that seeks happiness in design, food and space, everyday at their Melbourne and Tokyo stores. Japanese sensibilities and their evolving Australian lifestyles are combined to create a warm and welcoming world.  Above all else, it should appeal to the three driving elements that drive CIBI; head, hands and heart.

This activity is part of the When Robin Boyd Went to Japan exhibition public program taking place at Walsh Street from 18 February – 10 March 2024 – Find out more.  

Exhibition admission is included in your ticket.

This activity is generously supported by CIBI.
