  1. Thank you for always nice information.
    Current Japan time is midnight.
    New Year’s Day is a very important day for the Japanese people.
    In Japanese, New Year is called “oshougatsu”, and the very first day of the year is called “gantan”.
    People decorate their houses with special decorations.
    “Kadomatsu”, two groups of bamboo to place in front of the entrance; “shimenawa”, a sacred straw rope to protect the door; and “kagamimochi, round, piled up mochi (rice cakes) to appreciate and eat as a token of wellbeing.
    Families with young children often send New Year’s Cards with a family photo or a picture of their children.
    Ryoma.
