An Imperial New Year Greeting
New Year's week is one of only times that the usually private emperor & royal family make an appearance. Thousands come together to the Imperial Palace to wish the royal family a happy new year and create an amazing spectacle of white and red. New Year's Day is one of the most important holidays in Japan -- expats return home, families reunite, and wishes are made at the major temples.
