It’s New Year!

This picture book portrays traditional Japanese New Year customs. The protagonist is Naoko, who lives in a modern city where her husband manages a construction firm. As the year draws to a close, they buy a special lucky rake from a shrine fair, and then some materials for New Year decorations at Asakusa’s Gasa-ichi fair. They use these materials to make traditional decorations, which they sell to local people. When they’ve finished that, their family thoroughly cleans their house from top to bottom, she prepares the special New Year’s food, and on New Year’s Eve they eat buckwheat noodles as they see in the New Year. And once the New Year has started, in order to chase out bad luck, Naoko’s husband and others put on the Lion Mask and dance to the accompaniment of drums and flutes as they go around the neighbourhood wishing everyone a Happy New Year. (Sakuma)
