2018 is off to a busy start!

Happy New Year!

I was invited to attend a New Year’s celebration at the Japanese Consul General’s home.  Mrs Okai hosted the luncheon, which started off with the ceremonial breaking open of a sake barrel. Delicious traditional New Year’s food and specialty sushi was plentiful. On the front porch of the mansion in Shaughnessy, two huge matching New Year’s Ikebana were displayed.
