Kodomo no hi (Japanese Children’s Day)

Event date: 5/7/2017 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Kodomo no hi (Japanese Children’s Day)
In Japan, children have their own national holiday in early May - Kodomo no hi, or Children's Day. Families fly colourful carp-shaped streamers (koinobori), display special dolls and ornaments and celebrate children on this festive day. Come see giant koinobori flying in the Kurimoto Japanese Garden, make your own carp streamer and other Japanese crafts to take home with you, and listen to Japanese folktales. Enjoy the early spring Garden and be sure to visit the butterflies in our Tropical Showhouse.

Other activities include traditional Japanese tea ceremonies and guided walking tours of the Kurimoto Japanese Garden.
