Happy New Year! This is the second time that we welcome the New Year in Kyoto!
On Gantan/元旦(1st Jan), people go to Hatsumoude/初詣, that means visiting to pray at the shrine on New Year.
We wondered which Shrine we should visit… We went to Tsurugi Shrine this year! The shrine is not big, but beautiful! Once we’ve been there.
Neighbors come to pray continuously. The Shrine is told to inherit a guardian deity of children.
So that’s why, children were praying (and playing) with their family.
What is your wish ? 🙂
