What exactly is Golden Week?

It’s almost Golden Week in Japan! But what exactly is Golden Week? Golden Week (ゴールデンウィーク, “Gōruden Wīku”) is a week from April 29 to May 5 containing a rare collection of four Japanese national holidays.

The national holidays making up the Golden Week are: ▶ April 29 – Shōwa Day (昭和の日, “Shōwa no Hi”) ▶ May 3 – Constitution Memorial Day (憲法記念日, “Kenpō Kinenbi”) ▶ May 4 – Greenery Day (みどりの日, “Midori no Hi”) ▶ May 5 – Children’s Day (こどもの日, “Kodomo no Hi”) When one of the dates […]

New LYNX English pamphlet coming soon!!

We’re pleased to say that we’re finally done with the preparations for the new LYNX English pamphlet! Yesterday, the team and the models gathered for the photoshoot. We had a great time, it was actually fun and smoother than it could have been, also thanks to the photographer, Indra Bayu from Indonesia (yes, we like to mix cultures and approaches in everything we do.) Also thanks to Akihiro Okada and his Okaffe for letting us use their venue for one of the shots. Their coffee is great, adding even more pleasure to the process. Many thanks to all those who were involved!  

Happy International Women’s Day!

Just a quick reminder for those who don’t know that. Rumor has it it’s a half-hoax, but let’s share anyway. March 8, many years ago. A factory burns down. The doors are locked. Its workers, mainly women, get killed by the fire, trapped like mice. Since then, people decided to celebrate those victims (and their gender) to not let the tragedy go forgotten. That is why Women’s Day, now international, is an important day: not only it gives us another chance to say “many thanks to all ladies, you rulez”, but it’s also a day to check that all emergency exits work properly at our workplaces. Happy Women’s Day to […]
