A Happy New Year!
There are many “Kadomatsu” around Kashiwanoha station square.
Kadomatsu(門松) is a decorative pine that stands at the entrance of the house in the New Year. Since medieval times, bamboo is often added. They are installed symmetrically at the entrance.Originally, it seems that they are a place where the year god lives. The year god(Toshigami 年神) is a god who visits the house in the New Year.
