UK-Japan Craft (Kōgei) Picnic at Chelsea Physic Garden

As beautiful as it sounds, the craft picnic at Chelsea Physic Garden organised by Japanese craftspeople brought people together, using their favourite handmade cups and dishes to enjoy the fresh aromas of the Japanese cuisine. Definitely one of the more expensive picks of the week, but totally worth it.
