Presented by the San Antonio Botanical Garden and the Japan America Society of San Antonio, Kumamoto En Day celebrates the Japanese version of Children’s Day with a slew of hands-on activities and demonstrations. Eager young minds can take an “instant” Japanese lesson, make a kabuto warrior hat out of paper or an ikebana arrangement with fake flowers, watch exciting Kendo and Iaido marshal arts presentations, have their names scrawled in Shodo calligraphy, or pose for pictures with kimono-clad models. $5-$8, 10am-2pm, San Antonio Botanical Garden, 555 Funston, (210) 207-3250, sabot.org.
