Akemashite Omedeto Gozaimasu! (A happy new year!)

The old year has gone and we are in the new year of 2022. I feel totally refreshed in the new year.

For a traditional "Hatsumode" New Year's visit to a shrine, my family and I visited Samukawa Shrine, a majestic Shinto shrine near Camp Zama.

Now,  let's exchange our new year greetings with our family and friends in Japanese.

Today's Japanese phrase:

“Kotoshimo yoroshiku onegasi shimasu!” 今年もよろしくお願いします! =  I look forward to your continued good will in the new year! 

“kotoshi" 今年 = this year, "mo" も = also, "yoroshiku" よろしく = good care, "onegai shimasu" お願いします =  Please give me

 

I wish you a blessed, happy new year. I hope you will keep watching our videos to learn more Japanese phrases this year.

Kotoshimo yoroshiku onegai shimasu!
