Walk a Tokyo streetscape to explore the progressive, youth-inspired contemporary culture of Japan. Then cross the bridge to experience an ancestral heritage that still exists harmoniously side by side in a bustling city. Invent your own mascot, dress up in the kawaii shop, practice katakana writing, or tie a wish to the tree one more time before Hello From Japan says goodbye. Included with Discovery Center admission.
