Who Are You?

October 15th and 16th, 10am-6pm

Part of “Aki Matsuri” (Chrysanthemum Autumn Festival)

Perennial Garden Way, New York Botanical Garden

I was very glad that two days were very beautiful weather.

The theme of this time was Japanese culture. Through Japanese related Peekaboo-sculptures and explanation labels, visitors enjoyed and learned about Japanese culture.

We wore Yukata(Traditional cloth Kimono) at the site and explained visitors more details of Japanese characters .

The kiku (chrysanthemum) character was the most popular. Bonsai, Hakata festival man, Blue Kimono Girl, Hakama martial arts master, Kokeshi wooden Doll, Oiran woman Peekaboo-sculptures were also there.

Pigeon Whistle Peekaboo-sculptures was very short, however, some people tried their best and enjoyed it. That made everybody smile. 

People read explanation labels about charactor/history that put on the back of each board.
