New Years is an especially spiritual time of the year for Japanese. In order to celebrate and share in the spirit of this event, we will hold a traditional Japanese New Year's Celebration, called a "Shin-nen-Kai" among the members of the Japan-related Organizations of the Triangle Area.

We plan to include elements of traditional customs and rituals that signify the Japanese New Year. Food will be served in a buffet style.

Register by January 11th, by email to or phone 919-787-6233 (Rocky Iwashima). To volunteer, contact us at
