Yesterday was "Premium Friday" in Japan. For those of you who have no clue what this is, it is a government backed campaign to boost consumer spending after work by encouraging workers to leave early on the last Friday of the month , which just started in February.
This month the "Premium Friday" happened to fall on the last day of the Fiscal Year, so I doubt that the second Premium Friday contributed much for consumer spending except for farewell parties for those leaving the company.
For my cooking class, I had a group of British Company workers come to do a team building activity by cooking. They split up into 3 groups to make three kinds of gyoza dumplings. I hope they enjoyed their Premium Friday Evening!
