Daikan & Shinnenkai Parties

(From a great Tokyo photography blog, Tokyo Luv here)

This past week was the coldest week of the year according to the traditional east asian calendar, and it proved right as the ground was covered with snow!  This time of the year (usually from January 20th to February 4th) is called Daikan – aka “Major Cold.”  As much as that makes me want to cozy up in a blanket at home, we have a packed weekend schedule filled with birthday parties and shinnenkai (pronounced: shin-nehn-kie; meaning: new year) parties!  What are your plans this weekend?
