“Gashou” – Japanese Kanji Symbols for A Happy New Year!

gashouA Happy New Year !

I wrote “Gashou“. It means “A Happy New Year!” in English.

  1. “Ga” means Congratulation or Joy
  2. “Shou” is abbreviation of the New Year or January in this case.

We have many New Year’s greetings. It is the easiest of them and used in New Year’s card. We don’t say “Gashou” to others, we say “Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu”.

What is your favorite word about season? I’m waiting for a request.
