This January, the Japan America Society of Dallas-Fort Worth is teaming up with Mitsuwa to bring Shogatsu Festivities to the families of North Texas. 正月(しょうがつ）or Shogatsu, is the first of the year, and is celebrated with family in Japan. We want to bring the culture of New Years from Japan to all of you.
