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 attire.

We invite our blind and vision-impaired community members to engage in a tactile experience as part of this annual celebration.

Join us for a touch tour of the equipment Kagami Kai uses to pound mochi and receive priority seating for the celebration. A descriptive tactile and storytelling tour of the newly renovated Japanese galleries follows. Pre-registration is required for these special tours. Email [email protected] to reserve a spot.

As part of the day, paint a Year of the Rat netsuke (charm) and fold paper cranes for luck and prosperity in the new year.
