Japanese New Year: Celebrate Oshogatsu! @ Shofuso Japanese House and Garden | Philadelphia | Pennsylvania | United States
Oshogatsu is the Japanese New Year, celebrated on the first day of January. Celebrate an early Japanese New Year this holiday season with lush ikebana flower arrangements and traditional decorations of pine, bamboo, and berries. Displays for the new year’s tea and holiday games will be on view, along with an exhibition of winter kimono. Our Jizo statue will be decorated with a traditional cap and bib, and we we will share the kamishibai story “Hats For The Jizos” throughout the weekend.
 
Wear warm socks (we have slippers, too) and warm up with a complimentary cup of green tea on the veranda to enjoy the spare beauty of the winter Japanese garden from the sun-soaked veranda. We hope you’ll join us during this beautiful time of the year!
