Enjoy the video program! Have fun shopping for holiday gifts and for yourself! 


How do I let a vendor know this is a “Kokoro2020” purchase?  

Vendors have a variety of methods for accepting sales. The vendors with websites sometimes have a spot where you can add a comment. This is where you can indicate the sale is due to the Kokoro2020 event. If the vendor has a shopping cart with no spot to add a comment, then please email the vendor to let them know you want your purchase tagged as a “Kokoro2020” sale. 

If there is a problem with my order, can I contact Kokoro2020 or JANM?

You will contact the vendor directly to make your purchase and to resolve any problems. Please do not contact Kokoro2020 or JANM.

Is there a place to view all the vendors that were in the video?

A flipping book catalog of all the vendors, their products, and their website or email address is available to view and download here. Once the catalog opens, click anywhere on the page and you will be taken to the flipping book site.  

How will my purchase help JANM? 

Vendors will donate 10% of Kokoro2020-identified sales to JANM, which will benefit JANM’s education programs. While the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has temporarily halted in-person programs for school groups, education programs have gone on-line and virtual visits are now available to virtual classrooms across the country.

    1. Thank You!! The virtual Kokoro2020 committee appreciates your comments especially how easy it was to navigate. We’re glad you had fun shopping!!!

    1. Thank you for your shopping inquiry. I will add to Carol’s suggestions of vendors as well.
      The JANM Museum Store has available a holiday notecard set by Caldecott Award-winning artist and children’s book author, Allen Say. The holiday cards are titled “Tree of Cranes.” There are 12 cards in a set of Say’s illustrations from his children’s book, which makes it very special to give and to receive. In the past, I have personally purchased these cards, and each one is beautiful and unique.

      Also, more information is provided for you by logging on to access the JANM Museum Store as you continue to shop. Museum Store Director, Maria Kwong and her staff, are wonderful resources. Hope this helps.

    2. Hello, PK Witscher, The museum store has a Japanese cat Christmas card. Please look at the store catalogue because they do have some interesting note cards. Thank you for your positive comment about Kokoro2020.

  2. Hello!! Pomegranate has Christmas cards and Papermum Press may have Christmas cards. If you”re interested in Museum Christmas cards, I will check with the JANM store workers and get back to you.
