ご挨拶 「 年のはじめに 」小寒 Greeting " At the Beginning of 2024 " Lesser Cold*






あたらしき年のはじめの初春の けふふる雪のいやしけよごと
                   (古今和歌集 大伴家持)

新しい年の初め 初春の今日降る雪のように



The New Year begins.  Wishing you all the best for the new year.

First of all, there was a 2024 Noto peninsula earthquake at the beginning of the year.  I am sorry for the loss.  My heart goes out to all people in the disaster area.

This is the Year of the Dragon “Kinoe Tatsu” in Chinese astrology.  “Kinoe” is the first of ten heavenly stems and has a meaning of growth, development, and symbol of spring.  In the year of Kinoe Tatsu, it is said that spring sunlight will help everything to grow.  I wish you peaceful and healthy days for the rest of the year.

Atarashiki     Toshi no Hajime no     Hatsu-haru no
Kefu furu yuki no     Iya Shike Yogoto
Written by Otomo no Yakamochi from Kokin Waka shu

At the beginning of the year
Like snow which falls today
Hope great things happen one right after another

In ancient times, the snow at the beginning of the year was a sign of good luck.  Hope wonderful things happen in succession this year.

After Lesser Cold*, the days are getting longer and longer.  It still remains cold weather but we can find signs of spring.

*Lesser Cold: The traditional East Asian calendars divide a year into 24 solar terms. “Lesser Cold” is the 23rd solar term and starts on January 6th.
