Temple and shrines are very crowded in early January
In early January, the New Year events are held every year in Japan. People are going to visit a temple or a shrine to pray that they can spend the year well.
If it is a big temple or shrine, millions of people come to visit every year during the New Year period. If you go to such a temple or shrine at this time, you will be surprised that there are too many people.
Instead, if you do not care about congestion, you can observe the sight of the Japanese walking towards the main shrine of temples and shrines in orderly rows.

Representative winter festivals to be held in January
Festivals are held in various places in winter as well. Major festivals are concentrated in February, but several festivals are held in January as well. The most famous festival among them is "Wakakusa Yakiyaki" introduced in the photo at the beginning of this page.
"Wakakusa Yamayaki" is a festival that is held at Wakakusa Mountain (altitude 342 meters) in Nara City since ancient times. Today it is held in late January every year. It is said that it came to bake a part of the mountain to comfort the spirit of the mountain and prevent bad things from happening. Fireworks are also being launched at this festival.
At the end of January, "Lake Shikotsu Blue Festival" is held every year in Lake Shikotsu, Hokkaido. As a winter festival in Hokkaido, the Snow Festival in Sapporo is very famous, but this festival in Lake Shikotsu is an attractive festival inferior to Sapporo. You can experience plenty of winter Hokkaido, so I recommend.
I appreciate you reading to the end.
