Come listen to a bilingual story in Japanese and English!

This month's theme is featuring the story, How the Years were Named (Kamishibai)


Have you ever wondered how the Lunar Calendar came to be? Why the animals are in a certain order? Then join us as we celebrate the Year of the Rabbit and recount the origin story of the Lunar Calendar and Lunar New Year! This tale recounts the epic race for the order of the Lunar Calendar. Join us to find out the Lunar New Year jūnban (order)!

皆さんは「陰暦(旧暦)」の由来を考えたことがありますか?干支(動物)の順番はどうやって決まったのでしょうか。2023年度の干支であるうさぎの年を祝い、陰暦と旧正月の由来を一緒に学びませんか。この物語は干支(動物)の順番をめぐる壮大なレースの物語です。
