Carp streamers flying can only mean one thing—Children’s Day is approaching! Come share the joy of childhood as we celebrate Japan’s national holiday packed with fun for the whole family. Every child is a star as they pose with life-sized samurai armor displays and take to the stage in a popular sword-fighting workshop led by Kyo Kasumi from TATE Hatoryu NY. Families will also be captivated by the beauty of traditional Japanese dance through an enchanting performance by Sachiyo Ito & Company. Enjoy a variety of Children’s Day-themed crafts, and the excitement doesn’t end when you leave—bring take-home craft kits with you to continue the fun at home! 

Tickets: $15/$10 Japan Society members; children ages 2 and under free. Free for Cool Culture members. Advance ticket purchase required. Recommended for children ages 3-10 and accompanying adults.
