Shinnenkai 2018 – Japanese New Year Celebration-

Are you longing for the unique Japanese New Year celebrations or would you like to experience that for the first time? The Japan America Society of Minnesota (JASM) is bringing the sights, tastes, and sounds of Japanese New Year celebrations to Minnesota through our Shinnenkai event.

About Shinnenkai 2018:
Shinnenkai is an annual event which endeavors to bring the traditions of New Year celebrations as they are conducted in Japan to Minnesota. We will be promoting  cultural exchange and new experiences in a fun environment with performances, delicious Japanese food, a silent auction, mini-workshops, and children’s activities. We hope to create a fun family atmosphere that allows people of all ages to come together and experience a Japanese New Year!
