Season's Greetings from asianbeat

Happy New Year! We would like to thank everyone for being here with us today to celebrate the start of a new year.

Last year we strove to deepen mutual understanding among youth through pop culture and our asianbeat website and are pleased to say it was another successful year.

In October, the Overseas Fukuoka Prefecture Citizens Association World Assembly was held in Fukuoka and people from all over the world along with the citizens of Fukuoka came together for this special meeting. In addition to this, asianbeat invited a very special guest lecturer all the way from Hollywood - the celebrated makeup artist Akihito-san.

In the last year our asianbeat staff has been sent to not only different parts of Fukuoka but all around Japan to cover top stories and interviews.

For 2014 we would like to explore the theme of "youth culture - that which has no borders" on our multilingual website.

We hope you will once again decide to join us on this year's journey!
