Experience Japan without leaving Yellow Springs!

Join us for a 10-day Japanese symposium and cultural event, April 30 through May 9. Explore Japanese art, culture, tradition and language through a variety of workshops and presentations including The Kimono Project, raku pottery, papermaking, origami, calligraphy, ma, storytelling, natural silk-dyeing, sushi-making, Japanese embroidery, fish printing, shibori, a haiku slam, a variety of lectures, tea ceremony, a cosplay parade, a Japanese film and more.

In The Kimono Project, Kyoto-based kusakizome artist Mami Adachi and environmental educator Riko Mukai offer natural dyeing workshops and kimono displays to the community.

Many events are free and everything shown here is open to the public. Events with limited attendance require pre-registration and pre-payment. We expect them to fill quickly, so if one catches your eye, don’t wait!

Ohayo Ohio is offered by the Antioch College Cooperative Education Program in partnership with the Yellow Springs Arts Council, and sponsored by The Yellow Springs Community Foundation, The Lloyd Family Fund of Antioch College and Antioch Alumnus Timothy Barrett ’73.
