Our 2014 Uwajimaya Calendar Revealed!
December 18, 2013
It's that time of year again! Every December, Uwajimaya pauses to thank our customers for their support and to wish them well in the New Year. This year is no different. Starting today through December 31, 2013, to say "Thank You" and "Happy New Year," you'll receive one Dragon Dollar for every $25 spent.* Trade 4 Dragon Dollars in for a beautiful 2014 Japanese Uwajimaya calendar (while supplies last) or save your Dragon Dollars for use between January 1-14, 2014 (one Dragon Dollar equals one dollar off*).
Our calendars are ordered each year from Japan. This year, our calendar features artwork by Ryo Ippei. The title of the calendar is "Shizen no Megumi" which means the blessings of nature. We've done our best to translate the literal text shown on each image, but feel free to come up with your own interpretation.
