Kodomo no Hi/Children's Day

Children’s Day is a day set aside to respect children’s personalities and to celebrate their happiness. It was designated a national holiday by the Japanese government in 1948. It has been a day of celebration in Japan since ancient times.

At JAMsj we celebrate with a Boy’s Day Doll Display and Crafts for the children. Please come join us for lots of smiles and laughs for the kids.
