Tanabata Festival 2016 at Kew Gardens
Wednesday 3 & Thursday 4 August 2016, Kew Gardens
For the second year running, the Japan Society collaborated with the Embassy of Japan in the UK and Kew Gardens to bring the Japanese star festival to the UK. Hundreds of families joined us over two days to enjoy kamishibai story telling, nihon buyo, treasure trails, yukata dressing up, origami and calligraphy.
Thank you both to all our volunteers and to everyone who came to make the day so enjoyable.
