In Japan, the start of the each new year is very important! If you don’t follow us on Instagram yet, please do. We always share photos from behind the scenes in the workshop in Kochi. Last month, we shared a series of photos detailing the end of year and start of the year traditions in the business. Go check it out, please and thank you!
On the last working day of each year, the family drive up the mountain to a shrine to give offerings of snacks and light candles and incense for a positive new year. The views driving up the mountain are jaw dropping. The landscape in Kochi is gorgeous and varied.
