There’s no reason why New Year’s should only be celebrated on January 1st. In Portland, there are two more upcoming events to mark the Oshōgatsu season: JASO’s New Year’s event on January 17th and Mochitsuki on January 27th. Both are great ways to celebrate and reconnect with friends in the community as well as enjoy a lot of tasty holiday foods.
