Children’s Day is a national holiday in Japan celebrating children’s health, happiness, and family unity. In honor of the holiday, Shofuso celebrates children every year with festive on-site displays and activities and by hosting a Children’s Day field trip program that serves almost 500 school children. This year, Shofuso makes the stories and magic of Children’s Day available online for everyone beginning on May 5 when we kick off three days of social media content. Be sure to tune in when Site Manager James Webster gets the giant, colorful koi fish flags flying over Shofuso on Tuesday, May 5 at 11am on a Facebook Live stream.

The lessons are available for free, but a $15 donation is suggested so we can continue to make resources like this available.
