The Japan Society and the Embassy of Japan are organizing a family day, in conjunction with Golden Hinde and in association with Japan400, to celebrate the 400-year ties between England and Japan, and to introduce various aspects of Japanese culture to children of all ages.

The day’s activities centre on the replica of Sir Francis Drake’s Golden Hinde, which was used in the highly successful TV mini-series of James Clavell’s Shogun, the tale based on the true story of the first English sailor to reach Japan.

Onboard and around the dock, families can enjoy a variety of entertainment, from dressing in traditional Japanese armour and kimono, to watching Japanese folk tales performed on deck and recounted in the heart of the ship’s hold. Children have the chance to collect pictures on the Shogun’s Treasure Trail and make their own origami ships, or try their hand at Japanese calligraphy.

The Japanese flag is hoisted up the mainmast for the start of the day and lowered again at 5.00pm. For a full programme of the day’s timed activities please download the following PDF: Family Day Event Programme
