2021 was another tumultuous year, with some serious ups and downs — many are happy that we’re now into 2022, and that better days are on the near horizon.

In the Eastern/Chinese zodiac, 2022 is the Year of the Tiger. In this zodiac, the tiger is known for being ambitious, daring, enthusiastic, self-confident, in pursuit of justice, and interested in creating the common good.  If the Chinese zodiac is truly a harbinger of things to come, 2022 has the potential to be a very eventful year.


At Hokusei, we hope events in 2022 will bring welcome change and developments.  Like the tiger, we are planning to be be daring this year, including taking new approaches for our business and branching out to new market segments that we have never been in before.

That said, some things stay the same throughout the years, most importantly our continued thanks to our customers, business partners, and colleagues in Japan.

Happy New Year to all, and here’s hoping we’ll soon again be meeting face-to-face.
