Children’s Day doll display at Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures in April into May

April 24, 2018 – May 27, 2018, 4455 E. Camp Lowell Dr. Tucson

“Tango no Sekku or Children’s Day is a Japanese national holiday celebrating the healthy growth and development of children, especially boys. The purpose of the holiday is to encourage children to grow to be strong leaders and powerful individuals. Celebrated on May 5th, Children’s Day became a national holiday in 1948. Prior to that time many people celebrated May 5th as Boy’s Day. In celebration of the holiday schools have the day off and many families plan outings to fun places like amusement parks. Preceding Children’s Day is Girl’s Day. There are many comparable traditions between the two celebrations, such as setting up a tiered display of traditionally dressed dolls and accessories. These traditional displays of figures and other objects are called Musha Ningyo.

The Children’s Day Display at The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures dates to the mid-20th century and was donated to the museum in 2014 by Nancy Phillips. The display will be up from April 24 through May 27, 2018.”

“Your Name” film screening at APASA Heritage Month movie night on April 12

Asian Pacific American Student Affairs (APASA) office is at 1212 E. University Blvd, in the Nugent Bldg. on the UA Campus, on the 2nd floor.

“Take a break before finals start and watch a movie at APASA. “Your Name” will be shown with a discussion/reflection about the film after the movie. Enjoy some food and snacks while you watch!

“Your Name” (2016) is a Japanese animated romantic fantasy drama written and directed by Makoto Shinkai. The film tells the story about a high school girl in rural Japan and a high school boy in Tokyo who one day wake up and swap bodies. This strange, and random circumstance causes them to try to adjust their lives around each other and communicate through notes left behind as a connection between them unfolds.”
