This Sunday is the day to do something special for that most excellent of people, your mother. The custom of honoring one’s mother on a special day caught on in Japan in 1937 when the Morinaga Chocolate Company — yes, the guys who make those delicious Morinaga Milk Caramels and other products — held the first Mother’s Day Celebration Event at a popular amusement park in Tokyo, which received wide press coverage throughout the country. I was blessed with one of the most amazing mothers in the world, who not only raised me and was supportive as my odd obsession with Japan became my career, but who also became my trusted business partner, helping J-List to become what it is today. Wherever are you in the world, if you’re able to give your mother a special hug this Sunday, don’t let the chance slip by.So what are you going to for your mother this Sunday?
Mother’s Day is a time to cherish that very special person, your mom.
