Brightly dyed carp streamers will soon be fluttering above houses in Japan and many Japanese American homes during the celebration of Kodomo No Hi. In keeping with this tradition, koi streamers will be hung along 5th Street, leading you to JAMsj during the Nikkei Matsuri Festival.
 
Kodomo No Hi, otherwise known as Children's Day, is a nationally observed holiday in Japan, traditionally celebrated on May 5.
 
JAMsj will be celebrating Kodomo No Hi with various craft-making workshops. Children can learn how to make kabuto (samurai helmets), koinobori (carp streamers), and other crafts at this popular event.
 
 Hello Kitty will also be making a special appearance at the museum and at JAMsj's festival booth. For a small fee, we'll give you a special Hello Kitty crown or fan and take a special photo with Hello Kitty.
 
We'll also raffle off a special JAMsj gift basket. 

Cost: Entry is free with admission to the museum (non-members, $5; students and seniors over age 65, $3; JAMsj members and children under 12, free).  An additional materials fee may apply.     
 
For more information, please email PublicPrograms@jamsj.org or call the JAMsj office at (408) 294-3138.
