The Shiba Park Hotel in Tokyo announced on December 6 that it will hold an event on Dec. 31, 2016, to celebrate the coming of the New Year, and visit Zojoji Temple. The event is designed to allow guests from overseas to experience and enjoy celebrating the New Year in Japanese style.

On December 31, guests will eat “toshikoshi-soba” (noodles eaten on New Year’s Eve), and join the countdown to the New Year at the Japanese Culture Salon SAKURA. Hotel staff will escort guests to Zojoji for “hatsumode” (year’s first visit to temple) to participate in a traditional bell-ringing ceremony and observe other events. Guests at the Shiba Park Hotel and the Shiba Park Hotel 151 are welcome to join the event by paying a JPY3,000participation fee.



Shiba Park Hotel President Rentaro Yanase said: “We have many customs to celebrate the New Year in Japan. Eating “toshikoshi-soba” and bell ringing are part of them, which will be introduced by hotel staff at the event. I hope that guests will become familiar with Japanese culture through this event.”

The Shiba Park Hotel hopes that all guests will enjoy experiencing the traditional Japanese New Year celebrations and that their experience will last as an unforgettable memory of the Shiba Park Hotel.
