New Year 2019 2018/9/26 09:35
I am planning a trip to Japan around 2 Jan 2019.
May I ask if places of interest and shops are open during 3-6 Jan 2019?
Thank you

Some are open, some are closed. Depends on the places of interest. The 4th/5th/6th should be back to normal though.

New year sales starts on 2nd January generally, but some (especially independent) shops are close until 3rd. You can visit shrines like most Japanese people do on the first three days of a new year. It might be crowded but peaceful and beautiful at the same time. Also you can enjoy the quietness and merriment of the town, which you can't experience except the three days.
