New Year's Day is a traditional time to visit the temple for many families. Temples across Japan are packed!

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

The huge expanse of the roof dwarfs the people moving about with a very reflective attitude.
