Japanese New Year 2012

A happy new year !!

How's your new year's day?

I spent with my family and have eaten a lot... must have put on weight...:


This is the Year of Dragon in Chinese astrology.

Japanese people know their animal symbols of their birth year and celebrate the new year with the animal symbol every year.

For example, we draw the animal symbol on new year's greeting cards with message and doll of animal symbol is displayed in our house.

You can find lots of animal symbol's products in Japan around new year's day.

Otaru is famous for Glass, so we can see many kinds of glass work of animal symbol as well.

I took a above picture at Canal Plaza.

It's Glass Dragon. Cool, isn't it?

Would you like to celebrate the new year in Japanese style??
