Tachibana Dance Group and Utsuki-kai at Mochitsuki Portland 2012January 23, 2012
Established in 1996, Mochitsuki is Portland’s annual Japanese New Year celebration. The mission is to celebrate, share, and educate the broader community about the dynamic Nikkei New Years traditions while strengthening bonds between our Nikkei groups.
Numerous performers will be participating, including the Tachibana Dance Group and Utsuki-kai. I’ll be dancing Haru Kaze Soran with Tachibana and drumming with Utsuki-kai.
