The legend of samurai and the journeys of a ninja will have children hooked as they learn of the range of skills in combat and strategy warriors would have to learn to succeed in their arts.

Parents will also have the opportunity to brush up on their Japanese calligraphy skills, known as shodo, and will also be challenged to make the perfect sushi roll.

Museum of the Great Southern regional manager Catherine Salmaggi said the museum was delighted to bring a slice of the global community to the Great Southern during these school holidays.
