End of Year Greeting in Japanese

Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can; there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did.

With just another day left in December, I can’t believe it’s almost 2018. This year has gone by too fast for me. How about you? How did your Japanese learning go this year? Hope you had a fulfilling year and learned as much as you could.

Since it’s the end of the year, I thought I would cover the end of year greetings or messages in Japanese. Especially at your workplace, it’s very important to thank everyone you worked with for the past year. Just a simple thank you message goes a long way and leaves you on a good note for starting the new year next month.

These messages are nice note to send not only to your co-workers but also to your friends. 🙂

Thank you for everything this past year.

Thank you for all your support this past year.
