Happy New Year! The Samurai Split 年賀状 for 2014

Every year at the end of December, Japanese send a New Year’s care to their friends, family and co-workers called “Nenga-jyo” (年賀状)
The cards often have photos of the family, a traditional Japanese design and maybe a short message.

The most common message is:

明けましておめでとうございます。今年もよろしくお願いします。
[akemashite omedetou gozaimasu. ko toshi mo yoroshiku onegaishimasu.]
Loose Translation: Happy New Year!

Nengasho2014

Inspired by Jean Claude Van Damme’s EPIC SPLIT for Volvo, I decided to try to do the same with my nengajyo.

If you haven’t seen it, get inspired!
There’s also a funny Chuck Norris take.

So, from Japan to you, AKEMASHITA OMEDETOU GOZAIMASU! KOTOSHI MO YOROSHIKU ONEGAISHIMASU!
Happy New Year!

John
