Discover Nikkei Project Manager, Vicky Murakami-Tsuda, paints in the design for one of two kokeshi "bodies" created by the Japanese American National Museum for the 1st Annual Los Angeles Tanabata Festival in Little Tokyo.

A design created by Discover Nikkei Intern Yoshimi Kawashima was applied to Japanese washi paper, then painted in with acrylic paint.

After the paint dried, the paper was cut into long strips to flow beautifully in the wind for the Tanabata decorations.
