Gantan- Sai (New Year)

Gantan-sai is the Shinto New Year holiday.

On this day the faithful visit shrines to thank the kami (spirits within objects in the Shinto faith), ask the kami for good fortune, and make resolutions for the year ahead.

They say prayers for the renewal of hearts, good health and prosperity.  People wear their best clothes and visit one another's homes to offer good wishes for the New Year.
