Throughout the different seasons visitors will be able to:


· Dress in festival garments to celebrate the fall rice harvest

· Play festival drums


· Learn to use chopsticks while role playing a family meal

· Play Fukuwarai by closing your eyes and using magnets to make a silly face


· Practice calligraphy by writing nature kanji

· Make Teru Teru Bozu dolls that look like ghosts to ward off rain
