Hakusan Shrine in the New Year

12 01 2016

One of the more well-known shrines in my neighborhood is the Hakusan Shrine, a popular destination for its annual “Hydrangea Festival“.

I walked through it on January 3rd while we were still celebrating the arrival of the new year (typically between January 1st and 3rd) and found it busy with a much bigger crowd than normal.






And I was happy that this wine shop right by the shrine was open.  The sign even said that they had been open throughout the new year holidays.  I hope they had good business.
