Happy New Year 2019!

These photos are actually from my husband’s hometown of Sakata. I asked permission to take photos inside the grocery store. These are items being sold for the new year. (Japanese New Year corresponds to western calendar, thus it is January first.)

All the mochi that will be sold for New Year celebrations.

The red days on the calendar show the “Luckiest” days. (Taian Days) Most people in Japan don’t seem to pay attention to whether a day is lucky or not–except when planning a wedding. Most Japanese couples will try to choose a “Taian” Day for their wedding day.

Flower arrangements for the new year.

A great 2019 to everyone!
