 Oshogatsu Matsuri is a traditional Japanese community celebration to welcome the new year. This year celebrates the Year of the Monkey, and the festival will feature art and crafts, entertainment, food, and an exhibition of a children’s art contest (see above). The traditional ceremony of “mochitsuki” will be performed, a feat of skill in which mochi, or special polished, soaked rice, is pounded by two people alternating in rhythm with heavy wooden mallets called kine in a special mortar, or usu. When the mochi is ready, everyone will get a taste of this delicious treat. The event will be held at the Japanese Culture and Community Center of Northern California, 1840 Sutter St.
