Honolulu Shinto New Year

A L O H A !

 


Westerners call a sumptuous sight:
"A Feast for the Eyes"

Japanese people
say:
'Me No Shogatsu'
[ New Year for the Eyes ]

It is a special time.
Here in Honolulu
we share
traditions
with Aloha!

Thank YOU
for looking in.

Comment? Please!

It's grand to see people respecting and learning another culture's traditions. Wish it would happen more on the mainland.
