About New Year's celebration


There is nothing more auspicious than the longevity of family members, including parents and grandparents. Starting with the 60th birthday celebration, when a person reaches a certain age, the whole family celebrates longevity. At this age, we should visit shrines and express our gratitude and joy to the Great God for having lived a safe life, and pray for a healthy and happy life in the future.
