Family See and Make Afternoons: Celebrate Setsubun!

Drop by first Sundays (November through March) from 12:30pm to 2:30pm to try your hand at various arts from Japan. A variety of activities and demos will be on offer throughout the afternoon. Buy a ticket on-line or at the door. $9 per person, $7 members.

This week we celebrate Setsubun, a Japanese

holiday marking the transition from winter to spring. We’ll be celebrating with traditional kamishibai storytelling, taiko drumming, and oni mask making. The afternoon will end with mame maki, or bean throwing, to drive out evil and bring good luck!

Due to the possibility of inclement weather, this programming will take place in the Dixon Room at the Horticultural Center; a 5 minute walk from Shofuso Japanese House and Garden.
