If you’re in New York on Sunday, May 13, there are two things you must remember to do: number 1, call your mom to wish her a happy Mother’s Day, and number 2, venture out to Central Park to enjoy the gorgeous spring weather and the 12th annual Japan Day, a major cultural festival here in the city that celebrates all things having to do with the Land of the Rising Sun. Indulge in the thrill of a simulated ride on one of Japan’s famous and famously fast bullet trains; learn the arts of origami and calligraphy from skilled Japanese artists eager to share their talents; dance to the beats of traditional Japanese music; and indulge in the eats that delight taste buds from Fukuoka to Sapporo. If you won’t be in town that day, though, don’t worry. With the springtime just begun and summer just ahead, there are countless more major cultural celebrations still to come this year in the City that Never Sleeps.
