New Years Greetings

01Jan10

Or in other words “Happy New Years, please be good to me again this year”. I just want to say thank you to all the people who’ve visited this site over the last year, I can’t believe how many people come to visit my little corner of the internet.

Here’s how you pronounce the standard Japanese New Years greetings:

Happy New Year – Akemashite o-medetō-gozaimasu ((新年)あけましておめでとうございます)

Please be good to me again this year – Kotoshi mo yoroshiku o-negai-shimasu (今年もよろしくお願いします)

Teenagers sometimes shorten these into the colloquial “Ake o-me, koto yoro”, but using that in the wrong context could seem pretty rude.

Enjoy the New Year everyone! ^_^
