Mochi Tsuki Festival at IslandWood
from 12:00 PM to 04:00 PM
Join Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community’s 22nd Annual Mochi Tsuki Festival at IslandWood as we celebrate the new year!
Dress for the winter weather and experience the tradition of mochi tsuki (moe–chee sue–key) or "mochi–making" first hand. Pound rice and make mochi cakes along with the mochi masters.
BIJAC's acclaimed Kodomo no Tame Ni - For the Sake of the Children - pictorial history is on display, as is the latest in news about the Nidoto Nai Yoni - Let It Not Happen Again - Memorial.
Enjoy performances by Seattle Kokon Taiko - free tickets available at the festival on a first-come basis - as well as films about our community and guided tours of the IslandWood campus.
This event is free and no pre-registration is required. Although we all love animals, pets are not allowed at IslandWood (service dogs excepted).
