Nengajo Workshop and Kamishibai Storytelling 2019

Show Nengajo Workshops and Kamishibai Storytelling - Sat Nov 30, 2019

On November 30, 2019, JFT library hosted our annual Nengajo-making workshops. The year 2020 will be the year of the rat, or nezumi. Visitors enjoyed making Japanese new year’s postcards by using our homemade keshigomu stamps. Nengajo workshops alternated with Kamishibai storytelling, performed by Toshiki Mori. He read the seasonal folk tales “Hats for Jizos” and “How the Years Were Named.”

Nengajo made by workshop participants for 2020, year of the rat.
