Happy New Year!
Happy New Year! May this year be happy and fruitful for you.
I have decorated the entrance hall with the flowers bloomig
in my garden for A New Year. I arranged flowers (Pine tree , Nandin , mum , etc)
on a black , round vase.
My family , my brother and his family visit my parent' home to celebrate
the new year at this time of the yeaar .
We enjoy specially prepared Japanese new year's food (Osetiryori)
and rice cake and vegetable soup called Ozoni and drink Otoso there .
The decorative cut of boiled fish paste (Kamaboko) above was made by my son.
On every New Year's Day, We go to a big temple of the Soto Zen sect
near my parents' house to pray for happiness , good health and good luck for the year together.
We watch "The Tokyo-Hakone collegiate ekiden race", held annuall
in Japanese New Year , along the street every year.
We went shopping at "Mitui Outlet Park Yokohama Bayside ",
built right next to fine marina, by Seaside Line on January 2.
Popular brand items, interior goods and so forth are cheaper
than regular prices there.
New Year's holiday is a time for big sales. My mother and me each
found nice bags ,my daughter bought a cute bag , cosmetics and
some lucky bags full of valuable goods(Fukubukuro) : department stores or shopping malls sell when they open after the start of the new year.
