Japan America Society of Vermont

Beginning Japanese Class for Children (via ZOOM), Spring 2024

Dear Vermont Community Members,

Happy New Year!!! We at the Japan America Society of Vermont (JASV) wish a Happy New Year for all of Vermont residence and the world people.

This year is a Dragon year in the Japanese calendar, which guards temples and shrines where people go to pray. We sincerely pray all wars in the world will end and peace will come to us.

(Wash hands with water from Dragon before you pray gods at Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto)

We are going to have a New Year Potluck party from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Saturday Jan 20 at the usual clubhouse in South Burlington.

(0 Concord Green, South Burlington)

We are planning to make Mochi (pounded rice cake), a presentation (slide show) of Japanese New Year and practice of performances (singing, playing musical instrument and others) for Matsuri since we are going to have Matsuri this fall, and MORE!!!

Detailed schedule will be hosted on this website when the date gets closer. Please join us!!!
