Happy Year of the Sheep 2015.

Nengajo or New Year's Cards bearing the image of a sheep will be arriving at homes throughout the country over the next few days as people traditional pay a visit to a shrine (hatsumode) to pray for good fortune in the coming year.

We wish you all a peaceful and healthy 2015.
