How are you?
It have been Golden week in Japan,
Are you having a good holiday?
We are going to have our golden week holiday from tomorrow- 3rd to the 5th of May.
Please check out the here for the details!
Do you know what ‘Golden Week’ is?
It’s the week where we have many public holidays- that sometimes it becomes a whole week off.
For this year, these are the main three public holidays:
①3rd : Kenpo Kinenbi— Constitution Memorial Day
→The date the current Constitution of Japan came into effect.
②4th: Midori no hi—Greenery day
→It’s a ‘Greenery day’- the date we should thank to the nature and all the ‘green’ around you, and enrich your mind and heart.(*It stems from the Emperor Showa’s birthday on April 29. The name “Greenery Day” was chosen to commemorate the Emperor Showa, who had profound knowledge of biology and botany. And in 2007, Greenery Day was moved to May 4th.
③5th: Kodomo no hi—Children’s Day
It’s a day to celebrate children’s happiness and to respect their personalities. The day was originally called “Tango no Sekku”, or Boy’s Festival. It was celebrated in order to wish the healthy growth of the boys in the family.
Hope this will help know MORE about Japan : )
We’ll resume working from the 6th, Saturday.
We all are looking forward to see you soon!
