Happy New Year

Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu!

The Tomica 2-car set is an Oshogatsu set (New Years set).
The front of the box reads (from right to left, top to bottom):
Hatsu Haru Tomica (Early Spring Tomica)
Shou Shun (literally Exalt-Spring)
Heisei 24 (the year 2012, as per the Japanese calendar which is numbered according to the
year of the reign of the current emperor)
Inside of the box:
- the blue side reads the same as the cover, except it is written from left to right.
- the orange page reads "Heisei 24 Dragon" in reference to this being the year of the dragon.
The two cars, Toyota 2000GT, are colored in kimono designs.
