Hatsumode is the first shrine visit of the New Year in Japan. Some people visit a Buddist temple on the first, second, or third day of the year. They pray for good health, peace, or their wishes in front of the shrine. For instance, the students who would enter the university pray for passing an entrance examination, some people wish their family's happiess, or unmarried people pray for their marriage. Many people can't help feeling the New Year without going to Hatsumode.
