This is Yuka from Hatagaya!
I’ll report how I spent my new year’s eve →new year’s day.
Because I think I can say this is the traditional and typical way of spending new year’s holiday in Japan.
We’ll have “Tosihkoshi Soba noodle”to make a wish for “breaking off the old year.” also their thin, long shape is synonymous with a long and healthy life! thus soba is considered as very lucky food to have on new year’s eve.
Then we move to nearest shrine to ”Hatsumode“
Hatsumode is an event to pray for safety and peace for the year by visiting a shrine or temple for the first time since the start of a new year！
Hope you have a good year ever
