Join in on the Portland Japanese Garden’s O-Shogatsu celebration.

O-Shogatsu is a time of celebration for the start of a new year and hopes for happiness and prosperity to come. Portland Japanese Garden honors this special festival twice: once in appreciation for members only on New Year’s Day and then again on January 7, with traditional decorations and activities.

The Garden will honor this special festival with family-friendly activities and performances. Guests can also admire kadomatsu, or traditional arrangements of pine, bamboo, and plum branches, made by the gardeners.
