Join us for our annual summer celebration featuring Japanese and Japanese American performances, crafts, and activities.
Craft activities will include origami, shave ice suncatchers, and JANM’s ever-popular paper hat making. Visitors will also be able to sample saataa andaagii(deep-fried Okinawan pastries), participate in a bon odori community dance, and enjoy two book readings. Kishin Daiko will perform, as will gayageum player Joyce Kwon.
Exhibitions on view for Natsumatsuri include At First Light: The Dawning of Asian Pacific America, on view through October 20, and JANM’s ongoing core exhibition, Common Ground: The Heart of Community.
