Happy New Year from DMIJ, or Akemashite Omedetou as they say in Japan!
New Years in Japan is a special time where people show their appreciation to those they care about by sending Nengajou (年賀状) or New Year’s Greetings Cards. Japan has the fun tradition to base most of their new year card designs on the Chinese zodiac animals. The animal for 2015 is the sheep which might explain quite a few of the designs.
Below we’ve put together a collection of notable Japanese Nengajou designs for 2015. Enjoy!
May 2015 bring us more good design, happiness and wool sweaters!
