Did you know August 11th is a new Japanese national holiday from 2016?

I didn’t know until today.

My colleague has marked August 11th as a national holiday but I wasn’t aware of it. There is a summer holiday season called Obon in Japan but those are not marked as official holidays on calendar. I didn’t remember having an official holiday in August. I googled it and it turns out August 11th is a Japanese national holiday from this year!  😯

So what are we celebrating?

It’s called Mountain Day. There is Ocean Day in June, so it makes to have a Mountain Day…? I have no idea…

But I feel lucky to know about an extra holiday a week before.  😎

Shall I climb mountain that day to show appreciation to mountains?  😆

What will you do on Mountain Day?


Okami 🙄
