Golden Week(*) is finally upon us.
Let’s strengthen our bonds with
friends and relatives whom we
don’t usually have a chance to see.
Let’s spend each day meaningfully,
cultivating and expanding new
friendships and exchanges.
(*)Japan is entering “Golden Week” that comprises many holidays, which includes April 30 (Showa Day–originally Emperor Showa’s birthday), May 3 (Constitution Memorial Day), May 4 (Greenery Day), and May 5 (Boy’s Day).
