2017 is encroaching upon us which means it is a time to purify the mind, body, and spirit before we enter the new year. The beautiful Tsubaki Shinto Shrine in Granite Falls Washington is the most powerful place to do so.
HATSUMODE (初詣) Is the first shrine visit of New Years in Japanese Shinto tradition. Everyone will receive Okami’s Blessing / good luck for New Year.
Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America, is the North American branch of Tsubaki Okami Yashiro is one of Japan’s oldest and most prestigious Shinto shrines with a continuous history of over 2000 years.
For years now we at MY GREEN TEA has been serving tea for the community every new year for it’s first 3 days in the beautiful snowy evergreen forest of Tsubaki Shrine.
This new year we’d like to celebrate our 20 year anniversary and will also have some tasty matcha desserts.
So we encourage you to bring your friends and family to enjoy the beautiful Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America. Let us all start the year with tea and meditate with the intent for World Peace. We will be there brewing our finest throughout the event ^__^
