Japanese residents have been busy visiting shrines as the new year gets underway.
They're praying for a break from misfortune and disaster in 2012.
At a shrine in the heart of Tokyo's business district, it's believed the gods grace new year's pilgrims with prosperity.
That may be why thousands have gone there to offer a heavenly token and to pray.
