Celebrate with TIS at Mochitsuki 2016!

Please join us as we celebrate the Japanese New Year and share TIS’ Japanese culture and community!

Mochitsuki is Portland’s annual Japanese New Year celebration and has been a premiere event in the local community since 1996. The goal of Mochitsuki is to celebrate tradition by sharing Japanese and Japanese American culture.

TIS will be represented there with a booth there, where we provide information about the school and offer Fukuwarai, a "make a face” game that is common to New Year celebrations.  In addition, LowK and 1st Grade students from the Japanese track will be performing at the festival at noon, so be sure to try to catch them!

This year’s Mochitsuki will be held on Sunday, January 31 from 11am-4pm.
