New Year's Greeting from FBI

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!
