New Year's Day

Turned out we were too sleepy lazy to go to the shrine at midnight. So instead, we went in the afternoon on January 1st.


The lines of people were super long. We didn't wait. Instead, we entered the shrine through its parking lot.


And then we simply shimmied over to the group that was already there (they entered in batches) and that's it.


A few seconds of prayer and it was over.

Here's a video of what it looked like:


This is my entry for Show Me Japan.

Pretty orderly crowd. OMG, somebody climbed up those stairs in high heeled boots. I wish I can walk around in those and not feel the pain.

Wait wait... did I just see a wallet being thrown in as offering?
