Happy new year!

For me the new year started by waiting in line to ring the giant bell at our local temple.

Since the temple is quite famous it was pretty crowded, but the atmosphere was relaxed and there were kids playing, running around, energized by the sound of the giant bell. After we rang the bell we had some hot amazake and sat down with the other people around a heater, warming up as tonight is a pretty cold night.
This was a different New Year, unlike any one I have experienced before and I am glad that I got the chance to do that. Looking forward to 2014!


Happy new year!
