New Year in Japan

In Japanese, New Year is called “Osho-gatsu” and it is very important for the Japanese people. There are many events and customs to celebrate New Year’s Day. People decorate their houses with special decorations. Our Liberty Cove House has “Kadomatsu” (Bamboo) at our entrance. “Kagami-mochi” (rice cakes) to appreciate and eat as a token wellbeing.

Adults put money in a special envelope and give it to children. It is called “Otoshidama”. Kids are very excited to have them. Many people go to shirines to make wishes for the coming year. This event is called “Hatsu mode”
