Happy New Year
Happy New Year in 2019, wish you all good year of BOAR.
As you know we celebrate new year. New year holiday starts around December 29th to January 3rd. As I am doing independent business, I was working all the holiday, but also enjoyed holiday , cleaning rooms for welcoming new year, cooking foods for new year. I always take bath just before 0 am on January 1st. I like listening to 108 times bell ringing. After that I go to shrine where downward from my place. I live in top of hill. So when i go down to shrine, it is very easy to go but returning it is very hard. I took rest many times. Shrine of my place dedicates to Amaterasu Omikami and praying place is for direciton to Ise Shrine.
I go to shrie and say thaks to god and happy new year, go to mother home, relatives gather, go to grave, etc.
Actually there are many events during new year holiday, it is very hard rather than working.
Anyway, I hope pieceful and beautiful year for everyone.
