Happy New Year!! Cheers to 2017!!
We wish you a year filled with peace, good health and happiness.
In Japanese, New Year is called “oshougatsu”, and the first day of the year is called “gantan”.
It is a very important day for the Japanese people.
On these day, Japanese people go for “hatsumode”.
This means visiting a shrine so that you will be able to spend the entire New Year healthily.
Some people climb up the mountain before dawn to see the first sunrise of the year.
By the way, do you know how many temples and shrines are there in Kyoto?
There are about 1,600 Buddhist temples and 300 shrines scattered throughout the prefecture of Kyoto.
Every shrine is full of people in “gantan”.
This is one of our culture!
We hope all of our guests enjoyed our tours and go back home with happy memories.
Here are Mosaic Arts made by using tour photos in Dec 2016.
Please keep the wonderful memories in Japan and enjoy your photo!
Thank you again, for our guests!
