Presented by JICC, Embassy of Japan and the Golden Triangle BID

The JICC is holding a pop up booth on Friday, July 1st in Farragut Square Park as part of Golden Triangle BID's Farragut Fridays, Picnic in the Park event. As a way to bring together Golden Triangle workers, DMV residents and strolling visitors, Farragut Fridays is an all day, outdoor event which focuses on collaboration, innovation, and fun!

The JICC is happy to bring Japanese origami, or paper folding, along with kendama, a traditional Japanese game that tests your hand eye coordination, to the mix! Come join JICC staff as they fold Kabuto (Samurai) helmets, paper cups, and cranes as a way to promote Japanese culture.
