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.
