This is the small shrine and local meeting hall near our house where all the neighborhood business and festivals take place. In the first photo on the right you can see the remains of the dondo-yaki which was burned on little new year day.
I was in Michigan at the time, so didn’t attend the festival or get photos this year. If memory serves me though, all the previous festivals the little daruma weeble-wobbble doll on top was always burned. The fact that this one didn’t burn completely must mean bad luck is on the way for this year. I’ll try to stay inside as much as I can.
