Let us all pray that this new year will be much better than the past year.

Let us pray that Covid will dissapear, all sick people will completely recover and that our lives will come back to normal.

Happy new year to everyone!

I count at least 8 security guards in that picture. Why? Is Japan such a dangerous country that you need so many security guards? (If they are there to encourage people to wear masks, they haven't succeeded).

Japanese people need all those security guards just to tell them how to stand in a line?!

Went to shrines and temples over the last few days.

Beautiful, full of people (worrying) and oddly, hopeful.

Take care, everyone.
