Kadomatsu is a decoration with three cut pieces of bamboo and pine for the Japanese New Years Holiday. After Christmas, you will see this decoration at the entrances of houses and buildings in Japan. It is the landmark for the Shinto deity Toshigami-sama, to enter your home. In Japan, it is believed that Toshigami-sama comes to every family to bring happiness on New Year’s Day. However, the deity only visits when invited. Kadomatsu decorations act as a sign at an entrance to welcome the deity.

We will have a great time at the Japanese Garden with family and friends. Bring as many family members or friends to participate in this event. Hope to see you there ! Kanako Yamada
