celebrated Sunday at our resident Japanese culture center, the Morakami Museum (4000 Morikami Park Road, Delray Beach). From 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., there will be colorful lion dancers, hypnotic taiko drumming, Japanese fortunetelling, beautiful calligraphy demonstrations, and serene tea ceremonies. Partake in the traditional New Year’s food- mochi, large, round, and tasty Japanese cakes. For the kiddies, there will be Go, Hanetsuki (a badmintonesque game) Jan Ken Pon (a hand game similar to paper-rock-scissors), and Fukuwarai (AKA the Goddess of Happiness game). Start practicing now to greet others with “Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu!,” Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for kids, but you can score slightly discounted tickets if you buy them in advance at morikami.org.
