This is a letter from Tokyo at New Year season. I wish all your happy new year!!
I’ve heard Aoyama is the most beautiful one of them this year, so I went there to take pictures the scenery. Unfortunately, it was prohibited cross the pedestrian overpass, so I couldn’t take overlooking views. It was crowded with people shopping and taking photos.
I didn’t controlled anything with my camera, I just fixed to SMART function, which was automatically well-controlled according to the lightness, distances to the subjects. It was really convenient.
New Year Day is considered by most Japanese to be one of the most important annual festivals and has been celebrated for centuries with its own unique customs.
People decorate front door of their houses to celebrate new year and wish good luck. They call it “kadomatu”, which means pine of door. I could find many kinds of decorates in my town as well.
Do you know that this year is the year of rabbit? This year, rabbits might bring a fortune to you. Happy new year again!!
