A Happy New year in 2010


A Happy New Year !

Today is so beautiful sky in Tokyo.

This is the Year of Tiger (寅 or 虎) in Chinese astrology (干支 Eto). We call it "Tradoshi" 寅年.

We eat special and traditional food, Osechi, in New year and go to shrine or temple. Going shrine or temple is Hatsumoude (初詣). We receive and read some New years card, Nengajo (年賀状) from our friends.

2010 is the year of Winter Olimpic game and Soccer World Cup in South Africa. I'm looking forward to see these big sports events.

I'm so happy that I can spend relaxing time in this new year.

I wish you have a great time this year 2010.

This year was the first time I sent hand drawn Nengajo ^_^ I enjoyed drawing them though its not such a nice artwork but the effort of making them really made me feel good ^_^
