Ringing in the New Year
That’s Happy New Year in Japanese, or ake ome for short (and less formal). New Year is a huge celebration in Japan and, on New Year’s Eve, millions descend upon shrines to pray for good fortune in the coming 12 months. As seen in this video, Fushimi Inari Shrine, just outside Kyoto, is no exception. It is one of Japan’s most popular shrines, famed for the thousands of splendid red gates which form a tunnel of around 4km in length, leading up to the forested Mount Inari.
