Try one of Japanese kids' favorite traditions — welcome spring by scaring away ogres by throwing soybeans at them!

Dress your parents up like ogres, then practice some ogre moves and dances before the bean-throwing begins.

Explore Japan’s seasonal customs and culture through storytelling, creative play, songs and art making. Preschool-aged children and their caregivers enjoy intimate, tactile and interactive classes based on a different theme each month.
