Japan New Year

New Year, 正月 shogatsu, is the most important holiday in Japan. Most businesses shut down from January 1 to January 3, and families typically gather to spend the days together.

Facialmask Review: Anskin Green Tea Rubber Mask

This mask is for Sensitive skin, Skin trouble, Dark and Droopy Skin and Dry skin. This mask contains a lot of good ingredients; like green tea extracts inhibit skin oxidation that keeps your skin youthful, clear and helps maintain the health of the skin because of its rich ingredients such as vitamin E.

For the herring roll:
-Herring (Haring)

New year’s days are family holidays. The Solar New Year’s Day is more traditionally celebrated with friends. The Lunar New Years day is a three-day event. Most people try to return to their family homes to spend time with and to honor ancestors. If family members are not all gathering in one place, then it also customary for the younger generations to visit older uncles, aunts, and relatives that live close enough and give well wishes for the New Year...
