Today is new year’s eve.
“New Year’s Eve Bell” is sounded 108 times. 108 means number of evil passions. In Shibamata Taisyakuten, first bell is sounded at the same time as the new year.

As midnight approaches, the precincts become overcrowded with people for Ninen mairi (two-year shrine visit).
The approach to the temple is usually quiet at night, but it’s bustling only on this day.

I wish you all the best for the new year!
