Oshogatsu New Year’s Festival @ Morikami Museum, FL
Morikami Museum is one of my favorite places to visit, it is so beautiful I even got a year pass 😀 Hope you get to enjoy the picture video below!! Also check out the Taiko Drumming group, they are fantastic, I even got their info to see if I can join them… we will see (oh please excuse the audio).
Since 1873, the Japanese New Year has been celebrated according to the Gregorian calendar, on January 1 of each year, New Year’s Day. However, the original celebration of the Japanese New Year is still marked on the same day as the contemporary Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese New Years.
