New Year’s event in Japan – Tamaseseri


The one of the New Year's event, 'Tamaseseri' took place at Hakozaki Shrine today, the 3rd January.



As it is good weather, lots of visitors are queuing to pray, at least 30 mins. waiting!

The two sacred wooden balls displayed in proper manner.



The event start with the local Firemen’s drum performance.


It is a good weather, but still hard to be almost naked in Winter temperatures, especially for kids!

The first part of the fighting to catch the ball by children.The adults fighters take over at the halfway.

The end of the event at the small window’s of the God’s place. Lots of policemen and cameramen as well!

Kiki loves travelling and discovering new cultures and exotic places!! Whenever she has time to take a break from her busy life at her hometown of choice - Paris - she tries to find a new adventure. She has been in almost every Asian country, but Japan remains her number one travel destination. It wouldn't be a suprise if she has spent more time in ryokan and onsen than every Japanese person alive and one of her goals is to hike across the country in order not to miss out on any beautiful spot Japans nature has to offer.
