New Years is an especially spiritual time of the year for Japanese. In order to celebrate and share in the spirit of this event, we will hold a traditional Japanese New Year’s Celebration, called a “Shin-nen-Kai” among the members of the Japan-related Organizations of the Triangle Area such as Nippon Club, Triangle Japan Business Association, Raleigh Japanese Language School and Chapel Hill Durham Nihonjinkai. We plan to include elements of traditional customs and rituals that signify the Japanese New Year.

  • Traditional Japanese cuisine is served including Chirashi-sushi, Mochi, and more
  • Kagami-wari (ceremonial opening of casks of Sake) and Taru-sake tasting
  • Mochi pounding demonstration
  • Kiyari-uta (traditional Japanese ceremonial song)
  • Shamisen, Taiko performance
  • shinnenkai
