Happy New Year!!
Japanese people say, “Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu” or “Ake-ome”, in the New Year as a greeting.
Also, it is customary for Japanese people to send New Year’s greeting cards, called “Nenga-jo”.
Japanese people will send Nenga-jo to friends, family, coworkers, business partners, and other special and important people in their lives, wishing them good health and prosperity in the New Year, just like persons living in a Christian based culture might send Christmas cards.
This year Wedding Pro Japan sent out over 200 postcards wishing all a wonderful Year of the Rat!
May you also have a wonderfully healthy, happy, and prosperous 2020😃!
