Ringing-in ōshōgatsu at the jinja

I went to this same event exactly one year ago and thought it would be a good opportunity to record the sights and sounds of ōshōgatsu in a run-of-the-mill neighborhood shrine. Last year was when I had to pound mochi with a wooden mallet in a big stone bowl for part of the afternoon. (New Year mochi are, in my opinion, overrated. Even without the choking hazard.)

Unfortunately, I arrived after they'd already smashed-open the wooden sake kegs at midnight so I couldn't get that on video.
