Japanese Chamber of Commerce to showcase the New Year Celebration Festival Event in Little Tokyo 2023!

Experience the Japanese way of celebrating the New Year of 2023 in the heart of Southern California on January 1st. From entertainment, food, children’s cultural activities, and a sake fest, it is one of the most exciting events to take place in the Japanese community.

Oshogatsu in Little Tokyo will take place in Little Tokyo’s Weller Court and Japanese Village Plaza from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The event will feature traditional Japanese food, entertainment and cultural activities such as mochi making, a kimono fashion show, shamisen show, Kompo, and the list goes on!

The New Year celebration is organized by both JCCSC and JCCF. With the support from the Consul General of Japan, the Nisei Week court and various community members, we are very excited to introduce Japanese New Year and its traditions to the people of Southern California!

Volunteer Needed
