I would like to wish all my friends a very happy new year..in two days time..


I wouldn't want to be late so I think I better post it up early.




In Japan the new year is celebrated very grandly,


This is what most houses would have place in their house..to invite good luck to come in





Then for the children,we will give them ang pow,like our chinese way of doing.


In japan ,they are called"otoshi damak"..


They are given to children who are still in school,but once they finished school,thye are not entitle to receive it anymore,as they are considered adult already...


here is a photo of the "otoshi damak".."ang pow"
