How are you?
This is Ann from FBI editorial :)
I Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.
New year's holiday is a special holoday for many Japanese.
It's an important family gathering time as well as a celebration of the new year.
First Sunrise in 2017
This is called "Hatsu (first) Hinode (sunrise)" ,
and people often pray while the sun comes out to wish for their heath and well-being for the coming year.
They say observing sunrise on this specific day gives you a good luck!
We wish your 2017 be filled with joy and happiness :)
Have a great one!
