I will tell you how and where you can enjoy Japanese New Year.
We eat toshikoshi soba (buckwheat noodles) on New Year’s Eve around midnight to wish for a long life or long-lasting tie with families.
Is definitely value for money & always ends on a high!!!
Review submitted Great trip, especially for travellers who have not been to Japan before.
People go to mountaintops, observation towers or beaches to pray for health and family wellbeing. Hanetsuki (Japanese badminton), Takoage (kite flying) and Komamawashi (top spinning) are some of traditional games played during the New Year’s holiday. Some of us go out wearing beautiful kimono during New Year’s holidays.
Although fewer children are seen playing these games nowadays, some cities hold events to enjoy some of them. Many shops put New Year’s decorations called Kadomatsu at the entrance.
Our Word of the Year choice serves as a symbol of each year’s most meaningful events and lookup trends.Many of us feel New Year is coming when watching Kouhaku Uta Gassen on New Year’s Eve.This TV show gives you a time to enjoy songs and performances by popular music artists in Japan.Something traditional and beautiful can be found by just walking around the place you stay at.There are various local events and traditions to celebrate New Year in our country.Some temples allow ordinary people to ring their bells called “Joya no Kane”.
