Shin nen kai - New Year Party - Matto Bayashi

This past weekend we had a shin nen kai with the members of Matto Bayashi. Shin nen kai is a new year party. Not New Year's Eve party, but rather a party held sometime in January to kick off the new year. We went to a spa hotel type of place. It is basically a hotel with really soft rugs, because everyone walks around barefoot, and they have large, Japanese style baths, restaurants, massage parlors, etc. When you get there, they give you a set of pajamas, which almost everyone wears around the hotel as long as they are there, and you take a bath, eat dinner, relax, and so on. It's quite enjoyable, although we didn't spend the night. It was a nice opportunity to spend some time with the other members outside of practice time and get to know them a little bit.
