Explore Japan’s seasonal customs and culture through art making and activities based on a different theme each month.

From 1–2 pm, preschool-aged children and their caregivers  learn about the changing of the seasons and explore the colors of autumn through story, song, and a hands-on project.

From 2:30–4 pm, 6 to 10-year-olds collaboratively create a bustling metropolis inspired by the development of Tokyo from 1964 to 2020.
