La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

A brand new exhibit at the Children's Museum of La Crosse opened Saturday.

Hello From Japan takes up the second floor with activities and booths based on Japanese culture. Administrators at the museum say it provides a unique way for kids to interact and learn about a culture different from their own.

"It's really tough for a lot of people to go out and travel and one of the last places people seem to think of these days is Asia," said Maggie Moegenburg, one of the Playologists at the Children's Museum. "So why not bring a little bit of Asian culture here to America and even Wisconsin? That way, kids can experience that and understand what it's like."

Hello From Japan will be up from October until January 1st at the Children's Museum of La Crosse.
