Children’s Day School Visits
Children's Day School Visits
April 24-27 and May 1-3, 2017
Kodomo no Hi is a Japanese holiday held on May 5th, which promotes the welfare and well-being of children. The holiday is celebrated with displays of Japanese dolls, hanging of Koi Nobori (flying carp flags) and by serving Sakura mochi, Japanese sweet made of rice and azuki beans. As part of our goal to preserve and cultivate Japanese and Japanese American culture, the Children's Day School Visit program introduces children to the Japanese tradition of Children's Day through hands-on activities and craft projects.
