As usual we visited the nearby shrine on the first day of the new year. And as usual we bought tigers for Coco, Chie and me 🙂
Every day during the New Year’s holiday we’ve had nothing but blue skies. Coco and I have taken advantage of it by taking walks. Sometimes a couple of times a day. Afterwards Coco has been exhausted so he has slept a lot. If he gets a chance he will jump up and sleep on the shoulder of Chie or me when we sit in the reclining chair. You can’t do nothing but love it 🙂
After the New Year Eve’s dinner we have eaten Japanese preserved food, which is an old tradition. The reason is that traditionally Japan closes down for about 4 days during New Year. Also, it enabled the housewives to actually get some days off from cooking.
At the end of the 2nd day of the new year we went back to Tokyo. It was quite nice to get home again.
