Happy 2012 to all our visitors. It's the Year of the Dragon in 2012 and our nengajo (New Year's Card) shows the kanji character for the year of the dragon (辰; tatsu).
2011 may have been one to forget for many people in Japan following the huge earthquake and tsunami in the Tohoku area of north eastern Japan followed by a nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Dai-ichi (Number 1) nuclear plant.
