Happy 2013 to all our visitors. It's the Year of the Snake in 2013, below is the kanji character for the Year of the Snake (巳年; hebidoshi or midoshi).
2012 saw a change of government in December with Shinzo Abe and the LDP back in power, increased tensions with neighbors China and South Korea and a further decrease in business and consumer confidence. Still the yen is weakening slightly making Japan a more affordable location for a holiday of a lifetime from the ski resorts of Hokkaido to the tropical beaches of Okinawa.
We wish you all a peaceful and healthy 2013.
