This year, I received a beautiful nengajo from my former co-worker and friend, Patricia Wakida. It made me feel a little bit nostalgic. When I was a kid, my Dad carved the animal of the year with a woodblock print for nengajo. Interestingly, Patricia told me that she made it using her old Japanese gocco machine, which is a popular screen print machine that many Japanese households used to print nengajo.
