HAPPY NEW YEAR ! The First Sunrise of the Year (新年を迎えて)



It was a wonderful sunrise this morning.
We blissfully greeted the new year. 
May the year 2016 be a peaceful one for the whole earth!

Osechi (Special dishes prepared for the New Year), Otoso(New Year's spiced sake) 
and Shishimai(a dance with a lion's mask)
