Kodomo no Hi | Childrens Day Festival

Free Family Event, Everyone Welcome!

At the Japanese Cultural & Community Center of Washington (JCCCW), 1414 S. Weller St., Seattle, WA 98144

Kodomo no Hi will be held in person this year, for the first time since 2019! Kodomo no Hi, or “Children’s Day Festival” is a fun and exciting introduction to the rich world of children’s culture in Japan. Hosted by the JCCCW, this free annual event connects children and families in the community in a shared multicultural experience. Explore Japanese and Japanese American culture, art, history, music and more at this community celebration for children’s health and wellness!

This time, our event is themed around a Japanese idea called “Mottainai” — an initiative to reduce waste and save resources. We’ll be offering interactive activities, as well as live performances and demonstrations for you to enjoy!
