A happy New Year!
It became 2019!
How are you feeling?
Do you have a any goal of New Year?
We eat Osechi that traditional dish and rice cake in start of new year in Japan!
There are lots of people who watching Hakone Ekiden marathon with eating oranges in kotatsu.
Kotatsu is traditional heater in Japan.
Do you interested in?
Such a meal is also nice, but this is the main event of new year in my opinion!
Have you visited Shrine?
We call first visit to shrine or temple in the year “Hatsumoude” . .
Hatsumoude for someone might be 31st Dec.
Normaly we go Hatsumoude in new year.
Of course, I think that there are many people who greet the moment of becoming a New Year at shrines etc.
It is also nice to have a year-end with lots of people.
Local people where around HopStepInn will gather at Oji shrine and Oji inari shrine.
It’s not far from us to Oji shrine!
It should be fun to feel Japanese culture of new year.
We hope to see you this year!
