Hatsumode. ‘First prayer’ to bring in the new year, thousands if not millions go to temples at midnight to get their first prayers. It continues for the next few days.. I waited an hour in Kamakura Tsurumaki-Hachimangu, the main temple in Kamakura. 

Above is about 5 mins before going up the stairs. Below was getting in line.. more than an hour before!
