Lion's share


A "shishimai" (lion dance) is performed at the opening event of “iiyo!!” in the Marunouchi Eiraku Building. The new commercial complex, which opened Friday, hosts 26 new retail shops, restaurants and eateries. The name “iiyo!!” literally means “good” or “sure.” It was named to make visitors feel comfortable and give them positive energy. After you visit there, you're supposed to tell your co-workers and friends: "Ano mise iiyo!!” (That store is good!!)

http://danieldiaztecles.blogspot.com/As is the situation in Europe, we must learn the "SHISHIMAI" every time you open a business. It seems to me wonderful traditions are maintained and if they are to give good hope for any business.
