Hachimaki Craft for Children

No taiko player's costume is complete without a hachimaki! Bring your children to our tent and they can make their very own to wear while enjoying the festivities.


Parking

If you're planning to drive to the festival, please be aware that there is limited parking inside Hermann Park, and it generally fills up by early afternoon. If you are not arriving first thing in the morning, we strongly recommend parking along the MetroRail line and taking the train to the Hermann Park/Rice U station. You can find MetroRail info here: Red Line Rider Guide & Maps.

See you at the festival!
