Ordinarily, Japan has no problem working itself to the bone. That’s not the case at the start of the year, though, as the nation pauses to catch its breath and charge up for the months to come by visiting relatives, leisurely reading New Year’s cards, eating osechi, and buying lucky bags.

We hope you all get to do the same, regardless of where in the world you are.
