After a very tough 2020, we finally made it to 2021 (phew).

In the Eastern/Chinese zodiac, 2021 is the Year of the Ox. According to the zodiac, the ox represents hard work, positivity and honesty — qualities which will be reflected by events, developments, and interactions in 2021.



The Ox’s traits are especially welcome, especially after a year when although hard work was always present, positivity and honesty (in the political realm) were certainly lacking.  We look forward to putting up a new calendar, and “working like an ox” this year.  We wish all the best for our customers, suppliers, and colleagues in Japan in 2021, and cannot wait to see everyone in person, hopefully someday soon.
