Japan Day @ Central Park

Sunday, June 6

Now in its fourth year as a New York City tradition, Japan Day @ Central Park returns to the East Meadow this Sunday, with tents offering a wide range of family-friendly and traditional activities, samplings of popular cuisine, and powerful stage performances featuring entertainers from Tokyo and New York. Last year an estimated 45,000 New Yorkers participated in Japan Day @ Central Park -- and this year is expected to be bigger than ever!
