In samurai times, Children's Day, which falls on the fifth of May each year, was a special holiday to commemorate a samurai's coming of age. Carp-shaped flags are hung outside each family's door to represent each member of the family.

Come and learn about this unique tradition all weekend long at The Samurai Collection. Try on armor for children to feel like a noble samurai and crafts featuring traditional Children’s Day themes.

Free to the public and open to all ages.
