As the village taiko drum calls families home, Mochitsuki brings together the Japanese cultural organizations to celebrate, strengthen, and enrich the community.
There are many deeply rooted traditions and experiences associated with the Japanese culture and New Year which exemplifies simplicity, harmony, prosperity and peace of mind.
Join in the community intensive work of pounding mochi, take part in the intricate yet serene art of tea ceremony, or the precision and art of bushido.
Sense life with every breath in each stroke of calligraphy, and see a new perspective of nature with ikebana—not in the flowers, but the space that holds their beauty.
Join in starting fresh with precious memories to ring in the New Year as a community at Mochitsuki 2019!
