Tokyo - Japan Post had recently announced that they had delivered more than 1.81 billion Nengajō 年賀状 on New Year’s Day. Nengajō are Japanese New Year's greeting cards and they usually feature a decoration of the year's animal in the Chinese zodiac. Comparing to last year, the number had declined from 1.832 billion to 1.81 billion. Can you imagine that? 


Among nationwide, the highest number of mails came from Kinki region, also known as Kansai 関西地方, lies in the southern-central region of Japan's main island which include the prefectures of Mie, Nara, Wakayama, Kyoto, Osaka, Hyogo, and Shiga.
