Tanabata Japanese Star Festival!

From Jul 28, 2017 11:00 am until 3:30 pm

Immerse yourself in this time-honored matsuri!  Make a wish, create traditional decorations, try on a kimono, learn to use chopsticks, write your name in Japanese and put together a kite. Enjoy Japanese star stories and explore the night sky in the planetarium, then walk through the Shinto shrine and explore more in our temporary exhibition, Hello From Japan!  Sponsored in part by the Illinois Arts Council Agency and the JFNY Grant for Arts and Culture.
