Good Bye Year Party

Hello everyone!!
How are you?
Haven't you caught a cold??

In Japanese culture, there is 'bo ne n ka i(good bye year party)' (means forget about the year)in the end of the year.
Also we have 'shi n ne n ka i(new year party)' (means celebrating the beginning of the year) at the begging of the year.
We, friends, classmates, co-workers, and family members, get together and have great times.
It might be just a excuse to have a party, but as long as there is a way to have fun, who cares!!hehe
The other day, we, all Kyoto Hana Hostel members, had a 'bo ne n ka i' at the kushikatsu izakaya restraint near by us.
It has been almost 8 months since Kyoto Hana Hostel opened.
A lot of water flowed under bridge this year, but also we had fantastic moments together.

Here we are.
Waiting for everybody to arrive at the place.
It was all you can drink for 100 minutes.
We also had kushikatu and nabe (Japanese hot pot).

We were eating, drinking, talking, laughing...

We all forget about bad things which had happened this year.
Just remembering fun part of this year, and making this year end happily.

oops, he fell a sleep!! He must have had a lot of things this year!! hehe

Time flied.
It has been more than 100 minutes!! It is almost the time for the last train!!

We had a second round at Kyoto Hana Hostel.
When 5 of us went back to Kyoto Hana, we bumped into guests from Australia and America.
They were about to go out for drinking, but we stopped them and let them try sake.
A while later, all of us were having fun together!!

Drinking is the best world wide communication way!!

Everybody says Cheese!!

Finally, he passed out!!

Thank you very much for everything everybody!!
It was a wonderful year for me!!
Wish for your great year of 2011!!
