I'm a bit behind with posting these shots from New Year's Day - I forgot I had them! Oops!
These men are selling decorated bamboo branches called fukuzasa. People display them in shops and offices in order to bring good fortune for the coming year's business. The shrine was particularly busy this year!
I don't think that's a cigarette by the way...
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!
