Celebrate Japanese culture with a free day of fun at the Japanese American National Museum. This year, the Natsumatsuri Festival is back in person. Kids can decorate a pair of sunglasses, create a traditional Japanese fan, write their wish for the wishing tree, learn the art of origami, or take part in the 30th anniversary scavenger hunt throughout the museum.

There will also be live musical performances, children's book readings, a Kendo demonstration, and a Taiko performance to close the festival. 

Admission is free all day, but RSVP's are requested. You can RSVP to the event on the Japanse American National Museum website.
