Asia Society Texas Center's eighth Family Day will celebrate the last week of Universe is Flux: The Art of Tawara Yūsaku and inaugurate another exciting year of educational programming.

We will explore the cultures of East Asia, a region inhabited by over 1.5 billion people, in a fun afternoon for the entire family. Come learn about Japan, known as the “Land of the Rising Sun,” and home to the kimono, origami, and the largest city in the world. Your afternoon will also leave you informed about Korea, known as the “Land of the Morning Calm,” a nation where you will find the hanbok and kimchi.
