Publisher's Summary

A BackPax® Adventure. The Japanese have a tradition of sending postcards and a word for these friendly little holiday snapshots: Nengajo. Each greeting is a celebration of culture and of life, bridging the old ways and modern times. This BackPax journey delivers a bounty of Nengajo, audio "postcards" of colorful scenes and greetings from the land of the Rising Sun: "Toothpick Warriors" from the days of the Samurai, Kabuki (traditional Japanese theater), Seijin no hi (coming-of-age day), the dolls festivals for girls and for boys, a message about ecology, and more. Perfect for younger trailblazers new to BackPax, ages 6 and older.
