Boston Children’s Museum: Learn about the Japanese House & Celebrate Setsubun
Yokoso – welcome.
Visit the Boston Children’s Museum to see Kyo-no-Machiya, an authentic two-story silk merchant’s home from Kyoto, Japan. Learn about Japanese family life, customs, ceremonies, art, architecture and seasonal events with this 100-year-old house.
Check out their special displays celebrating Setsubun. Setsubun marks the beginning of spring by driving away bad luck and welcoming in good luck and health, with rituals such as Mamemaki – throwing beans.
Enjoy “Victory Bouquets”, a display of artwork created by the students of Tohoku University of Art and Design.
