Ever want to visit Japan? Here is your chance to do it without having to buy a plane ticket! JASM is bringing the sights, tastes, and sounds of a Japanese New Year to Minnesota through our Shinnenkai celebration. Shinnenkai is JASM’s annual New Year Celebration in which we hope that, by bringing the traditions of a Japanese New Year celebration to Minnesota, we can promote cultural exchange and new experiences  in a fun environment.  There will be cultural performances, delicious Japanese food, a raffle, and children’s activities as we hope to create a fun family atmosphere that allows people of all ages to come together and experience a Japanese New Year!
