Mt. Hiei, first sunrise of the New Year (比叡山の初日の出)

Posted by
GJC (Kyoto, Japan) on 2 January 2008 in Landscape & Rural.

It is considered good luck for the whole year to see the sunrise on the morning of January 1 (called "hatsunihode"). Here is the sun coming over the ancient peak of Mt. Hiei, the home of Japanese Buddhism, on New Year's morn. Happy New Year!
