It’s January, which means that we’re all celebrating the New Year. This is a big event for people around the world, but nobody holds a New Year party quite like the Japanese. In Japan, the New Year’s celebration is the most important of the year, beginning on New Year’s Eve and spanning the first two weeks of January.
To the Japanese, the turn of the year is a time for ending your business for the last year and looking forward to the prosperity of the next. They’ll visit the temple to share prayers, gather around a lavish meal with their family, give gifts of money to children, and engage in colorful traditional games and festivities. When you want to ring in the New Year in style, come to our Japanese restaurant in Seattle for a quality meal of sushi and other traditional Japanese dishes!
