Osho-gatu お正月

A Happy New Year !
Akemashite Omedeto Gozaimasu ! 明けましておめでとうございます!
Today is the beginning of 2008 !
I hope that many people see my blog and have interests about Japan.

Osho-gatsu means January in Japanese. Gantan means January 1. Therefore Gantan is today.
There are a lot of traditional things in Osho-Gatsu. I will introduce about them.
