New Year in Tokyo is about going to the shrine on New Year's day and about shopping. Today was bedlam as the shops opened after a day off yesterday. There were people queuing at the door for the shops to open and for the Fukubukuro or 'lucky bags'. I bought one which had clothing adding up to about 5 X the price of the bag. Only one item didn't fit. I was careful to choose a shop which had clothes 'free size' i.e big. Only one item was too small and one was far too big but the other three items are really nice.
This kitten which is trying to climb out of the cage via a very small hole, costs about NZ$2000. The price is reduced for New Year sales.
