About Japan Day
Japan Day @ Central Park is an annual event in early summer that celebrates Japanese culture with New Yorkers. Japan Day kicks off with the Japan Run, followed by the Kids’ Races. It provides food and activity tents. There is a stage program displaying a wide range of Japanese culture including both traditional and contemporary performances. The event is officially supported by The New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, the Central Park Conservancy, the Consulate-General of Japan in New York, the Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry of New York, The Nippon Club, and many Japanese and American corporations. This family-friendly event has captured the interest of New Yorkers since its establishment in 2007. It cerebrated its 11th anniversary last May with over 55,000 attendances.
