Garden Museum Hiei in Kyoto has announced that it will host a collaboration event with Kyoto Animation’s Violet Evergarden anime franchise, entitled “A Story of Flowers and Letters,” from May 3 to July 10, 2022. This will be the first collaboration between the anime franchise and an outdoor leisure facility in Japan.


The press release writes, “Garden Museum Hiei, a garden facility based on the theme of French Impressionism, sometimes looks fantastic with its garden, which changes its colors with the seasons, combined with the magnificent natural scenery of Mt. Hiei. These scene match the image of the landscape depicted in the Violet Evergarden anime, which led to the decision to hold this collaborative event.” 


The key visual, drawn especially for this event, depicts the protagonist, Violet, in an outfit and pose inspired by the works of impressionist painters, with the “Garden of Flowers” in the facility in the background.




The collaboration event also includes:


  • Admission ticket with original goods
  • Collaboration drinks
  • Voice-recorded introduction to the facilities by Violet (CV: Yui Ishikawa)
  • “Violet Evergarden” panel exhibition at Gallery soRa
  • Original character goods
