CJA NEWS: CJA’s first family show for Japan Society Family Program

TANABATA: Japan’s Star Festival

July 10, 2-4 PM

A child-friendly theatrical performance, directed by Sonoko Kawahara, introduces Japan’s famous Tanabata legend of Hikoboshi and Orihime in an interactive setting filled with song and dance. Following the performance, families make paper ornaments and their own traditional tanzaku, thin paper strips for writing one’s wishes on, to hang on the bamboo branches in our lobby. Recommended for children ages 3-10 and accompanying adults.

Seatings are very limited. Please visit Japan Society Family Program page to reserve tickets.
