Beppu Today, Dec 27th, Kadomatsu

   Last week, I showed Mr. Kumahachi Aburaya in Santa suits. Now he puts on his regular clothes.

    At the entrance of Beppu JR station, Kadomatsu was put up. Kadomatsu are new year's decorations made mainly from bamboo and pine branches, sometimes with ornamental cabbages or nandia or such that provides added color. You can see them at the front doors of shops, company buildings and houses until the beginning of January.
