Hatsumoude.The new year’s visit to a shrine

On the new year’s day right after I heared Joya-no-kane,the bells of New Year’s Eve,I visited a shrine in my hometown.

I threw ten yen coin in the offertory box,rung bells,two bows, two claps, made wishes and one bow. That is the way we pray at the shrine.

I wished the new year for health, happiness, and so on.

May this year be a great one!
