Happy New Year from Japan!

Everyone, Happy New Year 2011!

This is my new year’s selection of kimono, Homon-gi.

This is “otoso” which is sweet sake flaveored with herbs.

The youngest takes the largest sake cup. It’s believed

that to have the power to promote good health for the year.

New Year’s breakfast.

We went hatsumode, the first visit paid on the new year

holidays to a shrine or temple. We prayed for happiness for the year!
