Happy New Year 2012!

Celebrate it Tokyo style

Haven't decided yet where to go and with who to celebrate the new beginning of the 2012?

New Years Eve is celebrated world-wide by all people, doesn't matter of their nationality or their religion. We are all waiting for this special night and carefully preparing for it..Japan is a country without exception, specially Tokyo is a great city to be at New Year's.

So, if you decide to celebrate it in Tokyo, here are some advices and tips what to do and where to go. Anyway, you will find crowds with people doing hatsumode, which is the first visit to a shrine or temple, there is a festival atmosphere and celebration held in almost every single shrine or temple in Japan. You will experience a great time, with food, drinks, many people will line up for the prayer in the main hall.



Shogatso or Oshogatsu , which is the New Years, is the most important celebration in Japan, they know how to celebrate, so they shut the shops down until the third of January. All the families and the friends are gathering and spending this time as much as they can together. We all know that it's a celebration of a new start, new thoughts, ideas and hopes, for better life...Japanese are purchasing lucky charms for a fortunate new year, as most of the countries do.

In Tokyo everything has stated already, so make sure you don't miss that if your plan was to visit the magical metropolis, the city is jumping with loads of fireworks, dancing and singing. If you want to get closer to Japanese culture, you should know that they eat Toshikoshi Soba, a New Years Eve Noodle and listening to the Juya No Kane, The Watch-Night Bell. By the way, the Noodle symbolizes long and healthy life being long:)

So Happy New Year
