Blog update: “New Year’s Day was…♪( ´θ`)ノ”

Maimi enjoys a day off before the Hello! concerts kick off in her January 2nd update “New Year’s Day was…♪( ´θ`)ノ“. Full translation below.

Good morning
It’s Maimi

How was everyone’s New Year’s Day?(*^^*)

After the COUNTDOWN PARTY in Osaka was over,

we stayed in Osaka and went to Tenmangu shrine for our first shrine visit of the year♪( ´θ`)ノ

All the carts were lined up,
and it was crowded even though it was late-night,
so it really had the atmosphere of being New Year’s~

I ate a variety of things with everyone,

like Sazae no tsuboyaki,
yakisoba, kara-age, etc…(((o(*゜▽゜*)o)))

There was an Osakan specialty that’s not available in Tokyo,

and I think it was called tamago senbei??(・o・)

…It had a name like that, if I’m not mistaken, and it was reaaaally delicious( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

Everyone also got their fortunes(^O^)

I got~…

“Good luck to come”( ゜д゜)

I properly tied it up(`・∀・´)ゞ

I took a bath after we got back to the hotel,
and then we left right after I got out

We made an early morning trip home

Even though I had planned to type my blog update during the trip, I fell fast asleep

Upon returning home,
I ate New Year’s dishes(//∇//)

And then, I went with my mom and dad to the shrine they go to every year(*^^*)

I gave my thanks for the past year and prayed for this year

It was really crowded here too!(◎o◎)

The wind was reaaaaally, really cold, so my hands and feet were freezingヽ(;▽;)ノ

I bought a baked potato at one of the carts on the way back,
but it became cold instantly since it was so cold outside(^_^;)

I also bought pork miso and was going to eat it before it got cold,
but I wasn’t able to move my hands because they were frozen solid, and I dropped one of my chopsticks(°ロ°)

And then,
my mom said “Well, use these” and gave me the chopsticks she was using for her baked potato

However, once again I couldn’t move my hands, and I dropped it…(OロO)

There was nothing else I could do but laugh~(≧∇≦)

In the end, I ate the pork miso by mixing it with my remaining chopstick

Warming up with pork miso outside in the cold was the best

After returning home,
I balled up in front of the heater and fell asleep(´∀`; )

I woke up at night, and ate crab-nabe with my family~♪( ´θ`)ノ

As expected, food tastes best eaten at home~

The herring roe I love and the maguro my mom and dad went to Tsukiji to buy were delicious

I was happy relaxing at home

And then, even though the new year has already started, I wrote my New Year’s cards〓(*^^*)

It was a fitting New Year’s Day( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

Aaaalright
Our annual New Year’s Hello! Project concerts start today(o^^o)

My heart is pounding(*^^*)

I’ll have fun while working hard so that everyone has a wonderful time(^o^)/*

Well then, until tomorrow’s update~

  1. Thanks, again for these translations — it’s wonderful to see these little glimpses into Maimi’s life.
    Another minor nitpicky thing — 築地 — the fish market is Tsukiji (my cousin went there back when he was still in the Navy, and told me a story or 2 about his experience there — I guess it can be a bit of a tourist destination).

    • As always, it’s my pleasure.
      And thanks for the heads-up! There are times where I take a shot in the dark with people/place names that aren’t familiar, so I appreciate you letting me know.
