New Year Ornaments in Japan

Kyoto street posts with pine branches and tiny pink round balls

In the Philippines there is absence of New Year ornaments. We celebrate the event with fireworks, noisemakers, and food, including trays of round fruits on New Year’s Eve. But there are no traditional decorations unlike in Japan where in the days leading to this event, one can see ornaments like bamboo, rope, round pink balls, and pine branches. This was a curiosity to me that I took few snapshots of the ornaments.
