The Hatsumode on this Hatsumode New Year Furoshiki symbolises a Japanese tradition that marks the first visit to a shrine during the New Year. It dates back centuries, with some historians claiming it originated as early as the 8th century when Emperor Tenmu declared January 1st an official holiday. Traditionally, Hatsumode was seen as an opportunity for people to give thanks and pray for good fortune in the coming year. The practice has since evolved into more of a social event where families gather together to celebrate and share their hopes and dreams for what lies ahead.
