On New year’s day, my French friends came to my house and I had a great time! He taught me how to make Buche de Noel and we had it and New Year food.. 🙂 It was super tasty!! Chikara- Udon( Udon noodle with Mochi) We had a lot of foods (much more than pictures) then went to shrine to make a wish. Usually there’re no store at the shrine, but since there’re so many people on this special day, there’re Yatai ( small shops) there like Matsuri (festival). small sweet pancake fresh small apple candy potato butter Hiroshima-yaki(Okonomiyaki plus noodles) It’s a pity that we’re too full to have snacks there, but obviously it’s one of the things we’re looking forward to!
