We’re preparing to celebrate the New Year (shogatsu or oshogatsu) – considered the most important holiday in Japan and a highly symbolic time. Years are traditionally viewed as completely separate, with each new year providing a fresh start. Bonenkai parties (‘year forgetting parties’) are held with the purpose of leaving the old year's worries and troubles behind. Families gather together to celebrate, and homes and entrance gates are decorated with ornaments made of pine, bamboo and plum trees. On 1 January, wake up to view the New Year's first sunrise (hatsu-hinode), take a deep breath and prepare for the year ahead 🙏🏻 #princestories . . . . . #sunrise #newyear #newyearcelebration #newyeartradition #japanesenewyear #japanesetradition #beautifuljapan #nature #myunseenjapan #myjapanesejourney #globetrotter #wanderlust #thursdaythoughts #bringon2018 #princehotelsandresorts #shizukuishi #shizukuishiprincehotel
The last Pic out of 3! This completes #myjapanesejourney for now :) I'm so glad to be able to share what I've learned all these years spent #studyingJapanese .

Pic 2 of 3 on my #Japanese journey. This is the time where I was living, studying and working in Japan. I missed the #JETProgram so I signed up to be an #ALT with #ALTIACentral instead. Later I got to live in #Tokyo as a research student on the #MEXTScholarship for the summer! I was homesick and eventually moved back to the States, but I miss my time in Tokyo. If you have any questions about some of the things I did, feel free to leave a comment and ask me!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #japan #japanese #myjapanesejourney #thatjapangirl #japanaya

Guests at the Lake Biwa Otsu Prince Hotel can enjoy spectacular year-round views of the beautiful Lake Biwa, from each of the 520 guest rooms. Lake Biwa is the largest freshwater lake in Japan, located in Shiga Prefecture. Easily accessible, Kyoto is just a 10-minute ride away by train. Because of its close proximity to the ancient capital of Kyoto, references to Lake Biwa appear frequently in Japanese literature, particularly in poetry. Visitors can soak in the views from one of the newly renovated Japanese Modern Rooms, providing a blend of Japanese and Western styles #princestories . . . . . #princehotelsandresorts #japan #visitjapan #discoverjapan #traveltuesday #wanderlust #explore #discover #myunseenjapan #mytinyatlas #myjapanesejourney #globetrotter #instatravel #instapassport #lakebiwa #lakeviews #viewoftheday #roomgoals #hoteljunkie #kyoto #lakebiwaotsuprincehotel
Teeing off this week at Seta Golf Course in the Kansai Area 🏌🏼designed by one of the most renowned Japanese architects, Seiichi Inoue, the area boasts breathtaking landscapes and the choice of three impressive courses. Located just outside Kyoto, golfers can enjoy a morning of golf before heading into the historic city for an afternoon of exploring. #princestories . . . . . #kyoto #japan #discoverjapan #visitjapan #golf #golfwithaview #mondaygoals #viewoftheday #unseenjapan #myjapanesejourney #instatravel #instapassport #explore #discover #wanderlust #golfinjapan
Make your wishes come true at Fushimi Inari Taisha, which is the head shrine of Inari located in Kyoto, only 30 minutes away from Grand Prince Hotel Kyoto. The rows of torri gates were donated and wished upon during the Edo period (1603-1868) in the hopes of the wish coming true. Enjoy the two hour walk as colour and symmetry intertwine as the torii gates lead you through the mountain. 📸 @alicemilne4 #princestories . . . . . #princehotel #princehotelsandresorts #japan  #visitjapan #wearejapan   #tradition #japaneseculture #journeythroughjapan #instago #travel  #wanderlust   #myunseenjapan #instatravel #globetrotter #mytinyatlas #insidertips #fushimiinaritaisha #kyoto #traveltuesday #instapassport #myjapanesejourney #colourful #culture #discover #explore
