Performances & Activities
Try your hand at mochi-tsuki, a New Year tradition that has been around over 800 years and pound freshly steamed mochi rice with our gigantic wooden mallet and traditional stone mortar and watch the rice turn into sweet mochi cake.
There will be plenty to do for the artsy crafts type with traditional New Years games, Japanese calligraphy, making EMAs (traditional wishing plaques), and omikuji (Buddhist fortune telling).
As in Japan, we will offer the traditional New Year’s Happy+Lucky Bags for purchase. The bags will be chock full of gift certificates and high-end merchandise. Come see for yourself and find out how happy and lucky you are!
