Schools offering Japanese language classes are invited to participate in the celebration of Japan's Children's Day at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Japanese Garden on Sunday 5 May 2019 from 11 am – 1 pm

Children’s Day in Japan is set aside to celebrate children’s strengths, personalities and happiness. ‘Koinobori’, carp-shaped streamers and windsocks, are displayed outside homes, in streets and parks as a symbol of the carp’s strength as it swims against the current.  

The City of Hobart, supported by the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, invite schools offering Japanese language classes in the greater Hobart area, to join the celebration by working with their students to create traditional decorations for display in the Japanese Garden. 

The celebrations will be open to the public and commence from 11 am on Sunday 5 May, with the City of Hobart’s Lord Mayor officially welcoming guests, followed by a program of family-friendly activities, performances and traditional Japanese food. Families will be encouraged to stay on and enjoy the gardens with Japanese lunch options available for purchase.
