We visited a shrine where it takes about 30 minutes by car to do Hatsumoude.
Hatsumoude means that, it is an event to pray for safety and peace for the year by visiting a shrine ( sometimes temple ) for the first time since the start of a new year.
We are served free a cup of Amazake , and "can" strike the bell.
Yes, Akari is still with us. Tomorrow they will go back to TOKYO.
So I'm cooking their lunch and dinner box for tomorrow.
