Come celebrate Oshougatsu at the Japan Society of Boston! Join us to learn about and experience karuta and other New Years traditions!
Karuta is the Japanese card matching game in which the beginning of a poem is read, and players need to be the first to grab the card with the rest of the poem written on it. It is a popular game to play around New Years. Join us for an intro to this classic game, still popular today, and try your hand! Whoever grabs the most correct cards wins.
The primary language at this event will be Japanese, and we welcome students of all ages and native speakers of Japanese alike. We expect all guests to come with a friendly disposition to learn and help others learn.
