An exquisite Japanese doll exhibit presented in cooperation with The Japan Foundation and the Consulate General of Japan at Chicago

In Japan, dolls have been a part of everyday life since ancient times. Japanese dolls reflect the customs of Japan and the aspirations of its people, possess distinctive regional attributes, and over the centuries have developed in many diverse forms. Dolls also provide a showcase for traditional Japanese craft products, such as textiles.

Be among the first to see this exhibit at a special free opening event on Friday, April 16 from 3 to 7 p.m. Light Japanese refreshments will be served with sake tasting available from 5 to 7 p.m., while supplies last. Reservations are required. To register, call (402) 346-4002 ext. 201 or e-mail m.sears@omahabotanicalgardens.org.
