This fall, the Mississippi Children’s Museum (MCM) is proud to host a traveling exhibit from the Children’s Museum of Manhattan– Hello From Japan! This exciting Asian experience will be at MCM from now to January 3, 2016. This is exhibit seeks to immerse children and families into a new heritage, part of the Freeman Foundation Asian Culture Exhibit Series. Hello From Japan is locally sponsored by Nissan, Renasant Bank, M-Tek and Yokohama Tires.
In Hello from Japan! children will discover the brightly colored Kawaii fashion and Katakana writing styles. Various storefronts and activities educate visitors about contemporary aspects of Japanese language, cuisine, fashion, and design intertwined with traditional cultural values. Guests will travel to across tranquil waters on a bridge based on the Jungu-bashi Bridge in Tokyo.
MCM aims to introduce new audiences to Japanese culture while building an understanding of what it means to be part of a global community, and emphasizing the importance of respecting diversity. Special thanks to the Japan American Society of Mississippi (JASMIS) for a special programming to accompany the exhibit.
Hello From Japan! is part of the Freeman Foundation Asian Culture Exhibit Series funded by The Freeman Foundation and administered by Association of Children’s Museums to bring outstanding interactive exhibits about Asian cultures to children, their families and school groups at children’s museums across the United States.
Developed by the Asian Culture Series to explore Asian culture featured in five traveling children’s museums, the League of Extraordinary Bloggers is an app and game specially made for families.
