Sho-guns and samurai - that's what most people associate with Medieval Japan. But, there's much more! Join us in January as we read from the Tale of the Heike - the very tales the samurai and sho-guns used to model their behavior. Meet Yoritmo Minamoto, whose victory started the rule of sho-guns. Check out the important role women played in samurai society. Then find out just how "divine" winds stopped the Mongols and saved Japan. Discover why the Kamakura shogunate fell to the Muromachi. Enter the magnificent Golden Pavilion and check out its style. You might, some day, want to incorporate some style elements into your house - or surrounding garden! Then, prepare to sit back and relax as Japanese actors perform a play. An activity with directions for a Noh mask will let you introduce this special play to your favorite friends. See you in Japan!
