Happy New Year!

In Japan, there's a strange obsession with seeing the sunrise and the first sunrise of the year is especially auspicious. I knew this... and yet, I didn't expect to find a crowd at this little mountain behind my grandmother's house. I've been running there almost every day since arriving a week ago and hardly ever see anyone else on trail.

But there I was, sharing the first glorious sunrise of 2020 with 3 year olds and octogenarians.
