Let’s give toasts for everyone’s new beginning!

What kind of season is it for everyone in February and March?

Perhaps, in Japan, the new fiscal year begins in April. Isn’t it a season that everyone is toasting for a farewell or new encounters?

Let’s cheer and celebrate our new start of the year in Fukuoka!

The theme for this contest is… Kanpai Fukuoka”

We decided this theme to celebrate everyone’s new beginning of the year.

All you have to do is add the #fukuokayokaby hashtag to any celebration, toasting photos you have taken recently!

Let’s toast with Fukuokans and make a mood of celebration!
