Japanese Culture Day provides an exciting opportunity for K-12 children, their families, and teachers to learn about the Japanese culture through reading, writing, and draft making with cultural and linguistic professionals. The National Conference of the State Societies, which each year coordinates the Cherry Blossom Princess Program, has already committed to bringing some of the 2014 cherry blossom princesses to make tiaras with children. There will be origami, book readings (Japanese stories in English), kimono trial, and other activities. Visitors will also be encouraged to explore the center’s library of current and classic books.
