New Year’s/ お正月

良いお年を

The day before the new year.
お正月の前日。

Major house cleaning finished.
お掃除を終えました。

2018 was a year of realizations.
2018年、実現の年。

2019 will be a year of dedication.
2019年、献身の年。


明けましておめでとう。

We stood in line to ring the temple bell.
お鐘を鳴らすために並んでいた。

Fingers and toes frozen.
凍った指とつま先。

Mochi and red bean soup by the bonfire.
たき火による餅とお汁粉。

May you all have joy and peace in the new year.
あなたに喜びと平和を願って。
