Announcing the Results for the 4th Annual New Year’s Greeting Card Contest

We are pleased to announce the results for this year’s New Year’s Greeting Card Contest for Elementary, Middle and High School students. Every year, Japanese people send New Year’s cards, or nengajo, to friends, family, and coworkers and we are glad to be able to share this Japanese tradition with local students. Over 640 cards from 17 schools from the Northern California will be displayed in Japan Information and Cultural Center gallery from January 25th through February 21st. We hope you will visit our gallery.
