Omochitsuki / Rice Cake Making Event

January 26, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - January 27, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

All Kenjin-kai & Nikkei community clubs combined event series:

Host by Seattle-Tacoma Fukuoka Kenjinkai, their annual Omochitsuki/Rice Cake Making Event will be taking place on Sunday, January 27, 2019 (it’s a 2-day event for volunteers, includes Saturday the 26, 2019).

As usual, one day prior to the event, they will be in need of many volunteers to help in making preparations, do grocery shopping and setting up the venue on Saturday the 26th. The same goes for the day of the event, an hour before start (this would be 10:00 A.M. on Sunday the 27th). Lastly, they will also need volunteers to help pound the Mochi during the event, and also to help clean up afterward (about 3:00 P.M. on Sunday the 27th).

For those who would like to volunteer during the event, please register via mail or email at:

2020 Maltby Rd, Ste 7
PMB 135
Bothell, WA 98021



As usual, the event will be open to the general public, so be sure to bring all your family and friends to join the festivity.
