Happy New Year

明けましておめでとうございます。

The traditional greeting the first time you see someone in the new year: Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu.

It pretty much just means, “happy new year”. Usually, you’d also tack on a “今年も、よろしくお願いします”, which somewhat translates to, “please treat me well again this year”. It’s a bit of a mouthful, which explains why it’s sometimes shortened to “あけおめ”, or “ake ome” by some people. If you’re going to give it a go, best not to go with the shortened version, though, as it’s not really considered a proper greeting.

The year 2015 will be our first full year in business. We’re looking forward to keeping busy and helping make holidays happy memories.

We hope that 2015 brings much joy, good health and adventure to everyone.
