Japanese New Year Celebration

Sandra W. | Dec 10, 200312:04 PM

Thought I'd pass this on -- I'll be out of town.

January 1st, at 2nd & San Pedro intersection/Weller Court, there will be a New Years day celebration. The opening ceremony at noon, drum performance 12:25, sake barrel breaking at 12:40 (anyone know the significance of this?) and Mochitsuki (pounding of sweet rice) at 1:40. Food booths, samurai action show... etc.

There will be a tea ceremony and sake tasting corner at the New Otani. The add in "Sushi and Tofu" (a monthly paper) says more information at nylt.org (or link through shushiandtofu.com).
