It's a night of year ending traditions from Japan! Yaoyu Tong, owner of Five Elements Home, joins in to dish on Lunar New Year traditions in Japan. Hadley Hauser of Hadley-Go-Lucky Bakery joins us to make a Japanese Christmas cake, or ‘kurisumasu keki’ and will share her insights on baking with Japanese flavors in the United States.
It wouldn't be a Bonenkai without sake, and Vine Connections joins us to share their top picks along with the importance of sake in year end rituals. All of this is followed by renowned City Pop DJ Van Paugam who takes us home with a VERY special KFC holiday themed live set!
