Tenth Day New Year's Market

Plenty of charms to buy for the New Year!

This was the third time I've had the opportunity to visit the New Year's market in Aizu Wakamatsu. It only comes around once a year, so it's a blink-and-you-miss it chance to see the downtown area transformed into a wonderful shopping area, with plenty of stalls and visitors crowding the streets. Take a look for yourself!
