Tanabata at Japan Society

Japan Society celebrates the annual meeting of stars Altair and Vega (which represent the mythical lovers Hikoboshi and Orihime, respectively) with a production by lauded director Sonoko Kawahara. Kiddos will be delighted by the beautiful songs, dances and costumes, and after the show they can make their own origami Orihime and Hikoboshi characters, write wishes on tanzaku (colorful strips of paper) to hang on bamboo branches and snack on healthy Japanese eats from BentOn. Ages 3 to 10.
