How did you spend this New year?
In Japanese traditional culture, we visit to temple or shrine at the beginning of the new year.
I've visited to Hikawa shirine in Omiya Saitama on 4th Jan.
It was still very crowded there.
You can see this red shrine gate anywhere in Japan.
There's a important meaning between this gate and shrine.
The one of pleasure when we visited to shrine is drawing a fortune.
If people drew a unlucky, like this tied it on the ropes.
No space tie it anymore...
We also have a twelve zodiac signs as China.
This year is sheep sign.
This small red bridge is very cool trough the lake.
Normally here provides walking trails.
If you spent a new year in Japan, should visit one near by your staying place.
