Nengajo. Hanko, A gift from Japan.

New Year postcards; In Japan, there is a custom to exchange New Year postcards with personal or business acquaintances. On these cards, fixed phrases of thanks for the year gone by and greetings for the New Year are written, along with beautiful designs of the Oriental zodiac sign for the year. Some people also write briefly how they are getting along. Lately, it has become popular to make original postcards with a personal computer. The cards should be posted in Dec to be delivered on the 1st day of Jan.
