Experience over twenty traditional Japanese heritage games and toys at the 6th annual Jan Ken Pon! Family Games Day. This year’s event is centered on Setsubun (the eve of the first day of spring); where kids scatter beans to chase away the ogre and bring in happiness. Events include: playing with colourful tops and Japanese style cup & ball, make your own sumo wrestlers and otedamas (beanbags), to learning how to make origami pieces. The highlight of the day will be a rock-paper-scissors tournament – with prizes to be won. The event is suitable for families with children aged 4 to 12 (children must be accompanied by an adult).

 

Tickets: $4 before January 30, or $5 at-the-door.

Pre-order your obento lunch box (chicken teriyaki, onigiri rice ball, veggie sticks, dessert, and beverage) by January 30 for $5.
