Visit to shrine on New Year’s Day.

I visited my parents on New Year's Day. 

I also visited a shrine near the parents' home. 
There were many people standing in a line and waiting for praying for their happiness. 

It's Japanese traditional scene. 



Kagamimochi is a New Year's rice cake. 

People put them in a room and pray for family's health and long life. 


Happy new year

Happy new year!

Every year it is clear and fine sunny day on January 1st (Shogatsu). 

What is good in Shogatsu is tasting good sake from morning! :-p
This is Kikuhime from Ishikawa prefecture, which my wife's friend sent for us.
