Mochi Tsuki Festival

Mochi Tsuki Festival

4450 Blakely Ave NE
Bainbridge Island, WA 98110

For over a thousand years, making and eating the sweet rice treat called mochi has been a celebrated New Year’s tradition in Japan.

Join the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community (BIJAC) at the annual Mochi Tsuki Festival.

Dress for the winter weather and experience the tradition of mochi tsuki (moe–chee sue–key) or “mochi–making” first hand. Pound rice and make mochi cakes along with the mochi masters.

BIJAC’s acclaimed Kodomo no Tame Ni – For the Sake of the Children – pictorial history is on display, as is the latest in news about the Nidoto Nai Yoni – Let It Not Happen Again – Memorial.

Enjoy performances by Seattle Kokon Taiko – free tickets available at the festival on a first-come basis – as well as films about our community and guided tours of the IslandWood campus.

This event is free and no pre-registration is required. Although we all love animals, pets are not allowed at IslandWood (service dogs excepted).

2019: Woodward Middle School on Saturday, January 5th from 11 am to 3 pm.
