Omochitsuki

Celebrate the Japanese New Year with Kagami Kai, an acclaimed mochi group, as it presents the colorful and exciting New Year tradition of mochi pounding to make delectably sweet rice cakes, with lively music, energetic dance and traditional costumes.

As part of the day, fold paper cranes and take an omikuji (paper fortune) from our fortune tree to take home for luck and prosperity in the new year.
