あけましておめでとうございます。

I spend new year holiday in my warm home this 2016, too.
Of course, My mother and I am always eating and drinking 😛

We didn’t cook osechi this year, too.
Online shopping is very convenient ! And thanks to the system of Hometown tax, we could get hairy crabs ! Hairy crab is very expensive this year, so we gave up eating it during New Year holidays, but Samani town gave us two hairy crabs ! It was delicious !

今年もいつもどおり、家でのらりくらり正月を過ごしています。

今年もおせちはネットでゲット。今年のは見た目も質もあたり!

But I don’t want to stay in my house all days, so, I went to Tsudanuma area on my foot (40 minutes walk one way) and got some bargains !

今日は近所の初売りに参加し、バッグと洋服を買ってきました。ボディクリーム買うの忘れた・・・。

New year’s day don’t have much people in town all the same.

Of course, more people get out of their home and spend their time outside than years ago.
Many shops are open for special sales.
There was no people in my town like ghost town on January 2nd when I was a child.

Your Japanese guidebook might say that most of shops and restaurants aren’t open around New Year Holidays in Japan, but it is not. Certainly many shops and restaurants take holidays, but supermarkets, convenience stores and department stores are open regardless of New Year (But their business time is shorter than usual) in Metropolitan area and big cities. So, you won’t get tired of staying even in New Year.

And larger shrines and temples have much people from 0 a.m. of New Year’s day for first visits to there of the year. I always see it on TV only, and it looks fun. Though I never go to there because it is toooo cold !
