Asian Festival

  • 25 May 2019

We're Excited to once again be manning the Japan tent in the Community Square section of the Columbus Asian Festival!

This year, our tent will feature:

  • festival games like superball-tsukui (superball scooping), and wanage (ring toss); 
  • a calligraphy station where you can learn to write the new era name "Reiwa"; and
  • information about Japanese festivals!
We'll also be hosting hands-on learning experiences with The Columbus Koto Ensemble.

.

Beyond our Community Square tent, there will plenty of other Japan-related activities and experiences at the Asian Festival, including a special kimono display by Columbus Kimono and performances by The Columbus Koto Ensemble, Dublin Taiko, and Takarabune. Here's the full Japan-related performance schedule for the weekend:
