Hatsumode 2018

For the Japanese community, New Years is the most important of all cultural holidays when millions of people visit a shrine on New Years day.

Embrace the spirit of the Japanese here in Hawaii at Hawaii Kotohira Jinsha-Hawaii Dazaifu Tenmangu where you can be blessed for the new year, get your head bitten by a Japanese Shishi lion for good luck, be invigorated by taiko drums and partake of ozoni mochi soup.

Come join us at an event that is culturally exciting and spiritually enriching.

Parking with free shuttle at Damien Memorial School on Houghtailing.
