I took this picture in the late afternoon on the New Year's Day.
The street is decorated with Japanese national flags to
express celebration for the New Year.
Not many people are seen because many of us
spend the holiday in our hometown, not in Tokyo.

Masaki and I usually spend our New Year holiday quietly at home,
because Masaki can arrange his work schedule so we don't have to
travel when many people do.
This year, we are going to go and see my parents in Sapporo in
the fifth week of this month : )
