A free, drop-in event in the beautiful surroundings of the V&A as part of Children’s Day. The sights, sounds and stories of Japan will be celebrated across a varied programme of activities.
Families will have the chance to hear traditional stories and music, and bring their own imagination to the table in creative workshops. Highlights include performances of Koto Music (the koto is the national instrument of Japan), taiko drumming, and Masuda string puppets. Kids can have a go at making their own paper banners, try their hands at origami and design their own emoji and manga characters.
