Delicious Japanese bentos (from local favorite, Tako Grill) and fresh mochi from a Japanese confectioner will also be available for sale. Each bento order includes a bowl of homemade ozoni, dessert, and hot and cold drinks.
Separately, there will be two kinds of mochi for sale: Komochi (plain white mochi) and Daifuku (mochi with anko/sweet bean inside).
In addition, the Crafty Ladies will once again be selling their unique handcrafted gifts.
Lastly, don't miss out on the raffle and the chance to win fabulous items.
