Tucson Japanese Festival coming up on January 20, 2018

Although SAJCC has been hosting New Year’s festivals since 2014, this name change to Tucson Japanese Festival began last year. It is still a New Year’s celebration highlighted with mochi pounding of rice in a large bowl (usu) with a mallet (kine). Once again we will have taiko drumming, dance performances, music, Japanese children’s games, origami, ikebana, etc. Last year there was a bonsai exhibit as well.  There will be samples and food booths, such as takoyaki and ramen.

Price is the same:  $5 adults, free for children 5 years and under. To volunteer contact communications@southernazjapan.org. Info on festival itself, contact SAJCC Director Yuki Ibuki at yuki@southernazjapan.org.

Updates and prize give a ways  will be posted on our FB page:https://www.facebook.com/southernazjapan/

Join us for a happy new year (of the dog) in 2018.
