Happy New Year!
We hope you had a safe and joyful holiday season. The New Year is a special time in Japan, not only because it is the time of year visiting family and friends, but also because special events, like the Coming-of-Age Ceremony, occur. Every January, young Japanese who've turned 20 are celebrated in a special ceremony marking their passage into adulthood.
Just as these young people look to the future with hope of great things to come, we also wish you a year of success and good fortune.
May 2022 be a happy one for you!
