It’s 2021. This morning, I went to see the first sunrise of the year and went for a walk with Konatsu and may daughter.
When I went near the sea, there were a lot of people who came to see the first sunrise of the year, and the road was in heavy traffic.
In Japan, people believe Toshigami-sama, the Japanese deity of the year, comes with the first dawn, so it is customary for people to join their hands in prayer to ask for well-being for the year at the sight of the first sunrise.
The sun just started to rise as I was driving along the coast.
Bruno was the first dog Konatsu met this year.
It was very cold this morning due to the cold weather coming south.
After this, we went back home and eat New Year’s dish.
This is a traditional Japanese New Year’s dish called Osechi-ryori. It’s an assortment
of small dishes. Each dish has meaning, and is part of celebrating the New Year and helps usher in good health and prosperity for the family for the year.
