Gantan Sai
Start Date: 1/1/2017 All Day
End Date: 1/1/2017

Event Description:
Shinto holyday marking a new year. Traditionally, Shinto practitioners observe this New Year holiday by visiting the shrines, mostly at midnight and praying for the renewal of their heart, prosperity and health in the year to come. It is also common to visit close friends and family to express good wishes. Much like Christmas for Christians, Gantan Sai has become a national holiday in Japan and expanded out past the Shinto religious practices. />
