It’s almost 2020 and time to celebrate one of the first cultural events of the year. The New Year’s ‘Ohana Festival typically draws a crowd of about 10,000 people to Mō‘ili‘ili. And with the upcoming 2020 Summer Olympics being held in Tokyo, it’s a great time to learn more about Japanese culture and New Year’s traditions.
Organized by the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai‘i, the festival is among the largest Japanese cultural celebrations in the Islands. It’s held at two venues—JCCH and nearby Mō‘ili‘ili Field—and features a craft fair, food, live entertainment on two stages, cultural displays and games.
