That is a new one on me,
Where did you hear that?
"Kagami" means mirror, but as far as i know, "Biraki" is not a word in Japanese at all.
The expression for Happy New Year! is "Akemashite Omedetou!"
-Tomu

-When two blades cross points,
There's no need to withdraw.
The master swordsman
Is like the lotus blooming in the fire.
Such a person has inside of them
A heaven soaring spirit.
- Tozan Ryokan
4th verse on the 5 ranks
