A Happy New Year 2013

Happy New Year

New Years day, “Hatsumode”

Happy New Year!! or “Gantan” in Japanese.
January 1 — is a time to visit Shinto shrines and temples in throughout Japan, called “Hatsumode.”
Over 1 million people visit the Shinto shrines on the New Year Day only.
It is too crowded!! You cannot even look down your feet!
