Happy New Year 2021!
May this year be happy and fruitful.
The first blog in 2021 is from Boss Aoyama. We went to a shrine in the town we live to help them hold a new year`s festival. I know its difficult to imagine from the photo but it was very cold….
The preparation is finished. Anyway, what are they looking at from the shrine?
Every year at a new year`s festival, a priest celebrate the new year`s day but we have to complete preparation before that. At this shrine, they have some kind of branches so we have to help the branches. It`s just placing an offering but we need to ponder where and which direction to place an offering so it takes a time every year.
So the new year`s festival begins. The guy in front of the alter is a priest.
We need to take photos to remember where to place offerings.
After placing offerings, we go back to the shrine.
We take social distance…..
Another photo to remember for next year…..
I hope the pandemic finish this year and normal days to come back.
Before ending this blog, I would like to share some fun photos.Desserts we had a coffee shop after visiting my mother`s grave.
A sweet beans shiro noir and a burger filled with beef.They were so delicious and we will remember since it was a new year`s day.
