Kick off the Year of the Boar with nengajo designs from around the world!
Explore Japanese New Year traditions with an exhibition of nearly 200 nengajo, or Japanese New Year’s cards, from the ninth annual JICC Nengajo Contest as well as other Japanese New Year's related displays. This year’s contest drew artists from several countries, and their artistic submissions featuring the Year of the Boar will be at the JICC for the month of January. Come join us to celebrate the New Year.
The boar is the twelfth symbol in the Japanese zodiac, as the boar placed 12th in the legend of the zodiac calendar. The symbol of the boar often represents “strength” and “honesty”.
The exhibition is free and open to the public. The exhibition will be open to the public during regular JICC hours, 9 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday. The JICC will be closed January 21 in observance of holidays.
