Celebrating New Year’s Eve in Japan

A few years ago, my sister was teaching English in Japan, so my parents and I decided to visit over the Christmas holidays. I had always wanted to tell the story of our interesting New Year’s Eve. We ended up visiting both a Buddhist temple and a Shinto shrine and I really felt the juxtaposition between the two was worth writing about. I was able to write a blog post about the experience for Travel+Escape.
