Backpackers Hostel "J-Hoppers" & "Hana Hostel"

Did you go to ''Hatsumode''??

Happy New Year !!

This is Haru from Osaka Hana Hostel.

Do you know one of Japanese cultures '' Hatsumode(初詣)''??

New Year's Day is the biggest festival for all Japanese and is celebrated throughout the country.

''Hatsumode'' literally means the first visit to a shrine on New Year's Day, Japanese go to shrines to make wishes for the coming year : )


Osaka Tenmangu has large number of visitors every year on this period!!


【Osaka Tenmangu Shrine】


Address : 〒530-0041 2-1-8 Tenjimbashi,Kita-ku,OsakaCity

Normally we visit them during the first few days after the holiday.
10days have already passed from the 1st of January, but never mind.
Your feeling is important!!!

Japanese go to shrines to make wishes for the coming year : )
So I suggest that you visit to the shrine, please experience our culture.

Thank you for reading !!
