It was the last Tanabata-kai at the most beautiful space in Amsterdam “Jacaranda Tree” because the Jacaranda Tree is moving to a new space. The 4th and last edition of Tanabata-kai @ Jacaranda Tree was crowded with 40 children and their parents. We had a great time again this year thanks to all the participants and their parents, Flatto81, Yumika, Wonder-kids and Soona. Thank also to Roppongi, Yukinohana, Fukushima’s Voice and Hanato Morito for collaborating with us. We hope to continue this beautiful Japanese tradition and our creative approaches in the Netherlands. If you know any opportunities we could do this again, please let us know. Here with the pictures below I want to show you around the festival. You can also see more images at FB and a site of Flatto81.

Natsumatsuri “Summer Festival” July 2012

Here are some pictures of festival I organized last summer.  Natsumatsuri is a traditional Japanese Summer Festival during which we celebrate the season in Yukata (summer Kimonos). Children participated in Japanese culture at Jacaranda Tree in Amsterdam. We did creative activities and games such as making Uchiwa (Fans) and water balloon fishing.
