2018/01/03 Shirahama Shrine

My family and I went to the nearest shrine “Shirahama Shrine” on January 3rd after busy days.

Most of Japanese go to shrine at the beginning of new year to pray for good health and happiness.

It calls “Hatsumoude” in Japanese.

This shrine is very famous for its long history more than 2,600 years.

That’s why this place always is crowded with a looooot of visitors in the morning on January 1st.
