New Year Tradition

Hopefully this doesn't happen every year.

The one time denshas* run all night Is also the time hatsumoude** becomes a sight Praying for a wonderful year ahead But getting the dai-kyou*** fortune instead


*Densha(電車)= train **Hatsumode(初詣)= first shrine visit of the year ***Dai-kyou(大凶)= great curse, the worst fortune you can get from the shrine

In Japan, the trains run all night during New Year's Eve.
