Matsuri: Festival Japanese American Celebrations and Activites
Item No.: 151586


gift wrap?: 

By Nancy K. Araki and Jane M. Horii

When this book was originally published in 1978, the intent was to provide an encapsulated history on the origins of a few Japanese traditions, especially those that were important to Japanese Americans, who with succeeding generations were becoming disconnected from their cultural roots.

The book focuses on five cultural traditions and decsribes the origins as well as how celebrations have evolved within Japanese American communities. Since 1978, there have been more and more books written about these traditions as well as other Japanese culture, but in 1978 this was the book to teach your children about their JA heritage.

Paper: 140 pp.
