Gather around for Kamishibai storytelling!
Hats for Jizos is a wonderful holiday time story about an old man who does not have much but he is rewarded for his generosity. The story has themes of unselfishness, kindness, and being thankful for what you have. Enjoy the storytelling along with a hands-on art activity.
Kamishibai is a traditional method of storytelling in Japan using a set of story picture cards in a small wooden stage. In olden days before the era of televisions, Kamishibai was very popular entertainment for children, and storytellers, also candy sellers, came on bicycles to perform on the streets. Although these street performers are no longer to be found, Kamishibai is still a popular and appreciated form of storytelling and oral tradition in Japan today.
Kamishibai storytelling happens regularly on Wednesdays at 12:15
