New Years in Japan is a time to start fresh, to visit a temple, to make a wish. Everyone heads out to the temple to ring the bell and pray for the new year to be happy and successful. And to test their luck, we draw an “Omikuji” that tells us our fortune for the year. “Daikichi” is the best so if you draw it, it is said that you will have fantastic luck for the entire year. If you get “Kyo”, don’t forget to tie it up with the others at the temple, so they can burn it along with your terrible luck. Cheers!

3001A Year in TOKYO.

This is a a collection of photos of all the months of a year in Tokyo. I can only hope that I have been able to somewhat represent the beauty of all the holidays and seasons here in Japan. Please enjoy them and sometime if you get the chance, come see the real Tokyo for yourself! Thank you very much for viewing!
