Japan is celebrating the Year of the Tiger in 2010. (Chinese Zodiac)
The Tiger is the 3rd sign in the zodiac chart. There are 12 signs altogether.
The Tiger is the sign of courage.
This little set shows all the animals in the zodiac.
I have lived and worked in Japan for the past twenty five years off and on. I have seen many changes and enjoyed the various paradoxes and anomalies of everyday Japanese living.
