Every November, the Japanese celebrate Kinro Kansha No Hi or Labor Appreciation Day/Labor Thanksgiving Day to value diligence, celebrate production, and for the people to express their mutual appreciation. Subaru—the Japanese automaker known for its rally racing and off-roading heritage—adapted such a celebration here in the Philippines by holding the Kansha Festival every year.
For this year, the much awaited Kansha Festival is paired with exclusive sales promos for the entire Subaru model lineup and will run from Oct. 16 to Nov. 14 across all authorized Motor Image Pilipinas, Inc. (MIP) outlets.
The MIP is the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles in the Philippines and its Kansha Festival is its way of showing gratitude for the support especially during these challenging times.
