January 1 is a very auspicious day, best started by viewing the new year's first sunrise (hatsu-hinode), and traditionally believed to be representative for the whole year that has just commenced. Therefore, the day is supposed be full of joy and free of stress and anger, while everything should be clean and no work should be done.

January 1 is the most important holiday in Japan. While only January 1 is designated as a national holiday, many businesses remain closed through January 3 and families typically gather to spend the days together.
