In Japan it is customary to send out New Year's postcards known as "nengajoo." Join us as we listen to a story in simplified Japanese about the greeting cards for the coming New Year, which are now available at post offices nationwide. This year Japan Post is issuing 1.64 billion cards—10% fewer than last year, as more and more people are opting to send their season's greetings over email. We also learn commonly used phrases for sending regards both electronically and via post.
