Grand Opening of our Pretend Japanese Sushi Restaurant

Thursday, June 22, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Today expand your food knowledge by visiting our very own Pretend Japanese Sushi restaurant. The Japanese culture has a deep affection for the beauty of landscape and this restaurant will be a direct reflection of this. The combination of award winning cuisines, made by your little ones, and the beautiful ambiance of the Japanese culture will make this one of the finest dining experiences Pretend City has ever had!

Activity Times: Cultural Connections @ 11:30am; Sensational Story Time @ 3:30pm

  • Cultural Connections (11:30am): Japanese Language Lesson > Our Partners from Portal languages will be facilitating a mini Japanese lesson for our guests. Come learn with us!
  • Sensational Story Time (3:30pm): Hiromi’s Hands > Growing up in New York City, Hiromi Suzuki missed spending time with her father, a sushi chef who worked long hours in the family’s Japanese restaurant. She asked her father to teach her to make sushi. Little did Hiromi realize that her request would lead her to the forefront of a minor culinary revolution, as women claimed their place in the once all-male world of sushi chefs.

Play Partner: Portal Languages

Grown-up Tip: In every culture, there are children who grow up! Although our traditions, values and beliefs may differ, the developmental milestones children reach happen at predictable times regardless of our family dynamic. Practice reaching these milestones at Pretend City, where the importance of community is instilled at an early age!
