Japanese New Year Celebration in Boise

Japanese New Year was celebrated last weekend at the Dick Eardley Senior Center. Pounding the mochi is a traditional activity. Messy and really fun!

 Happy New Year from Japanese school students.

This is kadomatsu, a traditional bamboo and pine arrangement that is supposed to attract good luck for the year.
 
The celebration included music, readings and a giant potluck. I have no idea what this soup was, except to say that it was delicious.
