An event every month that begins at 1:00 pm on day First of the month, repeating until April 5, 2020

Japan Society

333 East 47th Street Midtown
New York    + Google Map


Suggested Ages: 2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-10

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 join in one of the favorite traditions of Japanese children – welcoming spring by scaring away ogres by throwing soybeans at them (setsubun). Children will dress their parents and caregivers up like ogres (oni), then dance before the bean-throwing begins.

From 2:30–4 pm, 6 to 10-year-olds explore the unpredictability of suminagashi (paper marbling) or “floating ink.” Drop ink into water and swirl to create unique paper creations.
