Japanese New Year is celebrated on January 1st unlike the Chinese or Indian New Year which follows the lunar calendar. The kind people of the Asian Cultural Center of Vermont (ACCVT) allowed me to join them and photograph their celebration. I met many wonderful people and learned more about the Japanese culture. They were very welcoming. The following gallery contains some of the pictures I took. The pictures are a bit grainy because even though I had my tripod, it was inconvenient to use in the gallery given the number of people and activities there. Oh, and yes, there are a number of food pictures! Cai paints the most wonderful paintings. I wish I could take all of them home with me!
