Invitation to the Japanese Association in Stockholm’s New Year’s celebration 2020!

It’s the first new year for the Reiwa-era and we celebrate this with a spectacular show on stage. The first-ever Swedish Rakugo-storyteller Sanyuutei Jubei will perform on stage as well as Haruka Sassa from the Royal Opera and a Japanese Nyckelharpist (Swedish traditional instrument). We will also have wonderful performances with taiko drums, choir songs, and Yosakoi dance.

Bon Aibon – Japanese Sweets in Sweden will be selling Nerikiri, Wagashi and other delicious Japanese pastries at the event. Bento-boxes will available for purchase. This year we will also have a selection of fantastic workshops such as Shogi, Japanese language café, calligraphy, origami, tea ceremony, ikebana, and traditional Japanese games. Don’t forget that we also have the all you can eat mochi-buffet, “fiskdamm” for the children and a lottery.

 Lottery ~Win every time!~ 1 ticket/20kr

In the prize pot, there are nice things such as restaurant vouchers, rice, and Japanese sake. Please keep in mind that the prizes must be taken home the same day, and cannot be sent.

~Setsubun Mamemaki~

Setsubun is a Japanese tradition to welcome spring and is usually celebrated on the 3rd of February. We’re going to celebrate it a little early at the New Year celebration where we will throw soybeans at demons to chase away bad luck. This is a tradition for children in Japan.
