Happy Year of the Snake 2013

2012 saw a change of government in December with Shinzo Abe and the LDP back in power, increased tensions with neighbors China and South Korea and a further decrease in business and consumer confidence. Still the yen is weakening slightly making Japan a more affordable location for a holiday of a lifetime from the ski resorts of Hokkaido to the tropical beaches of Okinawa.

We wish you all a peaceful and healthy 2013.
