So, this year I manage to partake into this common Japanese celebration that consist in witnessing the first sunrise of the year as a good omen for the upcoming travel around the Sun.
It's called "初日", "Hatsuhi", and it literally means "First Sun".
As today I have an afternoon shift, I'm home alone and on Winter the sun rises at a decent hour, I could allow myself to such an extravagance XD
So, I woke up around 0645, peed, put something warm on top of my pijamas, took the car and reached a close-by nice spot which wasn't covered by the airport.
This is the skyline at 0705 :D
Here it was around 0715:
Finally some red at the horizon!!
It was around 0725:
0740! Eeeh, how niiice!!
I was staying into my car 'til now XD As the sun was properly rising, I got out of it to give it a clear cheer! This was taken around 0745 :D
It was 0750 by then and it was starting to get freaking cold, so I took this last picture and got back in my car to reach home XD
Probably it was just a silly superstition, but looking at the sun of the new year rising up in the sky despite all the shit, energized me and made me wanted to be a little more daring, just like the sun and its daily, strong-headed sunrises :D
I hope that these pictures gave you the same feeling!!
Happy new year, everyone ^o^ !!
