Happy New Year!

Oshogatsu (New Year) is Japan's biggest holiday. Families and friends get together and eat special food, go to temples andshrines to pray for a healthy and prosperous year. Some kids go outside and play traditional games such as Hanetsuki (Japanese Badminton) although the most fun for kids is Otoshidama, pocket money from parents and relatives! ©Motoko Shimizu
