Celebrate Girl's Day and Boys' Day, the traditonal Japanese children's celebrations, amid sunshine and beautiful flowers. Watch a tea ceremony and listen to koto harp and shakuhachi flute music before making crafts with your kids. Celebrate the day by designing a kimono-donned paper doll, building a miniature carp kite and constructing an origami samurai helmet before listening to classic folktales.
