Sleigh bells have rung and Santa has packed our stockings with gifts, so what's left to do until New Year in Japan? Well, we've got BOUNENKAI here!
Maybe many have already heard about bounenkai but to anyone who doesn’t know, here it is. What is this bounenkai? Is it a person? Is it a thing? Well, it’s a term used to signify "end of the year party." It is written in kanji character as such; ,忘年会, and the term means "forgetting the year party."
