Oshogatsu in Olympia

I went down to the downtown Olympia Center on Saturday to pop-in on the second annual Japanese New Year's festival. 




Display tables, including one from the the Japanese consulate, and another from the the Olympia Bonsai Club lined the entrance. I spoke with with some reps from the Japanese consulate and the Jet exchange program and revisited some memories of living in Japan too many years ago.
A mini-museum displayed a variety of artifacts including geta - wooden platform shoes and childrens' zori.

  1. Great sketches, Jane! I have to admit, I didn't know that Olympia had an oshougatsu festival!
