Gift Giving in Japan (Oseibo)

Gift Giving in Japan (Oseibo・お歳暮)

What is Oseibo? Seibo (or Oseibo) is year-end gift. In Japan, there is a custom of presenting the gift to the indebted person in July and December. The one of July is called "Ochugen".

And the other one of December is called "Oseibo".

This "O" is a prefix applied when the word is politely paraphased.

We will present the Oseibo to an indebted person by December 1st to December 20th .
