What are the best ways to enjoy New Year's in Japan?

A fantastic New Year's filled with classical music!

This New Year's, I did something other than watching the music program "Kouhaku Utagassen" or go to Minatomirai to watch the clock tick to 0:00 of January 1st. I went to Minato Mirai Hall to watch the Sylvester Concert, which is a classical concert with music ranging from baroque to modern. I especially loved the music which incorporated the large organ (called Lucy!), because of it's heartwarming sound! Not only does this concert have some of the best musicians from Japan, but also counts down to New Year's Day, a piece ends right on the dot at 0:00! This will be one of the best New Year's spent if you love classical music!
