Hello from Japan

Open through Monday, September 2 (Labor Day)

We’re saying Hello from Japan! Come visit Tokyo right here in San Jose and get an authentic peek into Japanese culture. Featuring a bustling modern city street inspired by Tokyo’s Harajuku district that bridges to a tranquil Shinto shrine, you’ll see the incredible contrast between modern kawaii aesthetics and traditional motifs and customs. The transition between the two shows how the Japanese culture values history, a society where the past, present, and future harmoniously coexist.

Highlights include:

  • Sing karaoke
  • Make a faux seasonal meal
  • Design adorable kawaii mascots
  • Build a bridge
  • Crawl through a forest
  • Encounter kami spirits
  • Make a wish at a wishing tree
  • And mochi, mochi more!

Don’t miss this limited-run special exhibition!

This exhibit was produced by Children’s Museum of Manhattan.
