Happy New Year (Nagano II)

Temple at night. Rang a huge bell. The dragon went wild, almost burnt my jacket. Took part in carrying the dragon. Taiko-drums. Cheerful people.

It was a hard year for Japan...

Then really good New Year's food with symbolic meanings. Next day went to a large onsen spa. Another day a visit to a Shinto shrine. Prayers and predictions for this year. 
I hear I have an average year coming.
