Happy New Year 2017. Effect of Oosoji (Japanese big cleaning) 大掃除の効能

Happy New Year.

I am Ai, Ai Feng Shui Interior Consultant. I help people create their home more comfortable place where they can be what they are. Let me talk about Oosoji (Big cleaning which is one of Japanese customs, where people do deep cleaning all the areas in their house before new years come. )

To be honest, I am not that good at cleaning...I am a type of person who wish to skip cleaning if I could.




But in the end of 2016, "I'd like to do Oosoji with my husband!"


I told my American husband very seriously and passionately.


One month before the new year's eve, I sent some web site link to him so that he can learn what Osoji is like, and also I explained to him how important for me as Japanese to do this Osoji event before welcoming new year 2017.



And finally, my husband and I did out first Osoji together as family on December 31st, 2016.


It was a huge cleaning day!!


My husband was in charge of kitchen.
