Happy New Year!
We have a tradition to eat soba on New Year eve in Japan, and we call it Toshikoshi Soba.
Then we went to the local temple where we held Jizobon last summer and rang a bell.
I have to get up at 6 tomorrow morning to attend a New Year’s ceremony with formal clothes at our shrine in the neighborhood.
That’s how a New Year begins in Satoyama.
