How do you speak to someone who you first met? Japanese people often start to talk about their business cards because we exchange them as greeting. Exchanging of business cards is one of Japanese business manner to introduce each other. Recently I had an opportunity to meet Japanese web designers and developers and I got many creative business cards! I’ll share some of them!

Joined Web Designers + Developers Party!

My friend who is a web designer in Vancouver, Canada temporary returned to Japan and hosted a web designers meet up in Osaka, Japan!


I joined it putting on this Kabuki mask because I’m shy hahah But I took this off in 1 hour because I couldn’t breath well.

I’ve Got Many Business Cards!

I’ll share some of creative business cards!
