Umbrella Corridor

Metsa Umbrella Sky Design Project

Metsa in Hanno, Saitama has a new exhibition area with Japan’s largest umbrella corridor. Approximately 2000 colorful umbrellas will be stretched across the path extending over to the Moomin Valley Park. Metsa is a lakeside forest facility with Nordic influence that is made up of two areas: the Metsa Village, a shopping and restaurant complex with an outdoor area with canoeing and adventure ropes, and the Moomin Valley Park, the home of the famed adorable troll family.

Presentation And Q&A For Families

Laurus School Primary Orientation In English

Laurus International School of Science provides children with the ability and skills they need to navigate their future, and to become innovators who can contribute positively to the world in uncertain times. Their original STEM curriculum was developed based on extensive experience as a science school. They also teach literacy, programming and Japanese language. Laurus International School of Science will be holding a primary school orientation session featuring a presentation and Q&A for families. Places are limited so reservations must be made in advance online. They ask that only one family member participates alone (without their children). All participants will be required to wear a facemask, disinfect hands and bring indoor slippers.
