O-Shogatsu, Japanese New Year Event - Portland Japanese Garden. O-Shogatsu literally means “standard month.” “Standard,” in this instance, means the standard a person sets during the first days of the first month of the year. This standard will then regulate their fortune for the rest of the year. Therefore, people are in their highest spirits and hope for the best. All ill-feeling and disagreeable recollections are left behind with the old year and a new chapter of life opens, replete with happy prospects.

During O-Shogatsu, people celebrate the start of a new year and hope for happiness and prosperity in the months ahead. 

Let’s celebrate the wonderful beginning of the new year together!
