Kites, kimonos and culture. The Contemporaries of the Azalee Marshall Cultural Activities Center held a “Journey to Japan” Tuesday as part of a program that introduces local students to other world cultures. The Contemporaries’ “Hands-On” program has been active for the past 20 years. The group selects a different world culture every year to share with children who come through the doors. “Each year, we choose a culture that, hopefully, the children don’t know that much about already. This year, we’ve chosen Japan,” Contemporaries chairman Beverly Kermode said. Over the next month, third-grade classes from throughout the area will file into the CAC to experience a taste of Japanese culture. The event is broken into four stations with various activities.
