JASC and The Japan America Society of Chicago are hosting Kamishibai (Traditional Japanese Story Telling) on Tuesday August 2 from 11-12pm. Cost is $5 per person, $5 per child with adult, or $10 per family.

Kamishibai is a type of traditional Japanese story telling that has deep roots which were developed during the Edo Period (1603-1868) and evolved into a type of street storytelling from the 1920's into the 1950's.The kamishibai storyteller rode a bicycle that was equipped with a small stage for showing the story cards that went along with the stories.

The stories that will be told at this program are titled "Momotarō (Peach Boy)" and "Bon Odori (Bon Festival Dance)", and will be told in both English and Japanese. There will also be a short Japanese lesson in which key words for "Momotarō (Peach Boy)" will be introduced. At the end of the program, you and your children will also have a chance to learn and dance Bon Odori around a traditional Japanese tower!

All children in attendance will also receive a handmade Momotaro memory game to bring home!
