The famous Japanese Golden Week is about one week late-April early May. This year 2020, it happened on 4/29 then 5/4-5-6 holidays, not forgetting the 5/2-3 week-end. Japanese people use to take days off to cover their working days during this week to have a real holiday week. Japan would be crowded but very animated if you choose to visit this country this period.
- 4/29 is the Showa Day, Hirohito, Showa Emperor (from 1926 to 1989)’s birthday.
- 5/4 is the Nature Day.
- 5/5 is the Children Day.
- 5/6 on 2020 is the Constitution day. Actually, Constitution is celebrated on 5/3 but as it was on a Sunday, the nearest working day, the 6th, became a holiday. This system is wonderful!
Japanese People also use to travel during this Golden Week in Japan or abroad, go back to their families or take good time where they usually live. This year 2020, it was a little bit complicated! The Japanese government asked us to stay home. What a pity for those who wanted to travel! Stay home and avoid going outside. It was not mandatory but Japanese people mostly respected the directions. Little walk, cleaning, repairs, games… Everybody had their own activities. It was Monopoly board game for us… Haha! The occasion for me to learn much more about Osaka
But well, I hope the situation will get quickly better. I have plenty of projects, I’d like to share them with you.
