We at Best Trading, Japan wish you a Very Happy and Joyful New Year – 2009.
This week is an important holiday for most businesses in Japan. Most used car dealers in our network as well as Japanese used car auction houses also observe holiday in the first week of the new year.
Japanese people typically welcome the New Year in tradional fashion. We clean our houses and offices before the new year begins, and have traditional new year decorations made from pine, bamboo and plum trees at the entrance of homes and shops.
