Hatsuhinode (The First Sunrise) of 2011 from Suzuka, Japan

Chiyozaki Beach, Suzuka, Mie, Japan

Hatsuhinode (はつひので or 初日の出) means the first sunrise [of the year] in Japanese.

Ancient Japanese believed that Sun is one of thousand gods. And it was the most important God. Japanese, then, think it's very sacred to see and pray to the 1st sunrise of the year. Then now, Many Japanese go to the beach or climb mountain to witness the first sunrise of the year.

Earlier today on New Year's Day, YokosoNews aired the live broadcast the Hatsuhinode of 2011 from Chiyozaki Beach, Suzuka, Mie, Japan. This is the digest of 2011 sunrise.
