Mochitsuki is Portland’s annual Japanese New Year celebration and has been a premier event in the local community since 1996.

Mochitsuki Portland is a community volunteer-run non-profit event.

The goal of Mochitsuki is to celebrate tradition by sharing Japanese and Japanese American culture.

2019 event attracted more than 3,000 people, not just Japanese Americans, but from every walk of life shared and enjoyed the event. We expect the number of visitors to grow more in the upcoming 2020’s event.
