Japan Post Co., Ltd. (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, President Kazuhide Kinugawa / hereinafter “Japan Post”) is a service that allows you to “complete everything on LINE” for a series of New Year’s card experiences such as purchasing, creating, sending, receiving, and saving. Smart Nenga” will be available from November 16, 2022 (Wednesday).
[Product service content]
The culture of exchanging greetings at the beginning of the year has taken root in our lives and is used by many people. On the other hand, with the spread of personal computers and smartphones, greetings through means such as e-mail and SNS are also spreading.
Even as the style of New Year’s greetings continues to diversify, there is still a deep-rooted need to say, “I want to think of someone important to me once a year and give my heartfelt New Year’s greetings.”
As a “new form of New Year’s cards”, we have expanded the “handmade feel and customizability” that is the source of the warmth of “heartfelt” that the original New Year’s cards have, and added “easiness” in line with the times. In addition to the “paper” New Year’s cards, we will continue to sell “Smart Nenga” that can be exchanged on LINE, as we did last year. This year, more than last year, we have reviewed the operability, etc., making it easier and easier to use. This service is recommended for those who do not know the address but want to send it to friends connected via LINE, or for those who have never experienced exchanging New Year’s cards. [Image 1
