Happy Ebisu Festival~

So, Jan. 10-12 marks Ebisu Festival (戎祭り-literally means the festival of the god of fishermen and prosperity) in Osaka~ So what do we do? This is the day most business people will go to the shrine (神社-jinjya) and pray for business success and prosperity. This year seems completely awesome~ weather was good too! In conjunction to this, it was also also Coming of Age Day (成人の日 to mark the 20 years of age for girls reaching their adulthood) on January 11. So many girls in beautiful, expensive kimonos on the street to celebrate it.

Here's a video of the festival to bring the best of luck and prosperity to everyone.
