Drawings Featuring Hatsumode Visits - A Special Way to Kick Off the New Year
Hatsumode is an event in Japan during which people visit shrines and temples at the very beginning of the year. People offer prayers for peace and determination in the New Year, seek out their fortunes for the year with omikuji, and write their wishes on ema (votive picture tablet). A hatsumode visit to a temple or shrine can make one feel as if they're starting the new year on a bright note.
Hu Tao (from Genshin Impact) looks splendid in her formal furisode kimono as she offers a prayer during a Hatsumode outing.
Hopefully taking a peek at the illustrations below will help you get your year off to a good start.
