Golden Week is the national holiday in Japan! Golden Week will be the most famous holiday after the New Year holidays and Obon.

Today is May 1, 2022. It’s in the middle of Golden Week in Japan!
I will explain about Golden Week, which is a national holiday in Japan!

The holidays called Golden Week in Japan are May 3 (Constitution Memorial Day), May 4 (Greenery Day), and May 5 (Children’s Day). First of all, it will be three consecutive holidays.

look at this! This is the calendar for May 2022 in Japan.

Holidays are between Saturday and Sunday. Many people are closed on Saturdays and Sundays.
So if you take May 2nd and 6th off, it will be 8 consecutive holidays. Yay!

moreover! In fact, April 29th is also a Japanese holiday (Showa Day)! Since April 30th is Saturday, there will be 10 consecutive holidays.

It is Golden Week that many people take consecutive holidays like this!

When traveling abroad, the store may close on public holidays depending on the country.
During Golden Week in Japan, tourist destinations are open.

Family-friendly places such as shopping, amusement parks, zoos, aquariums and camping are especially popular with Japanese people.

So, if you go there, you can enjoy the vibrant Japanese holiday atmosphere!

However, because it is crowded, it is more likely that you will line up in the store! 😂

Since it is easy for multiple people to arrange holidays during the Golden Week holidays, we often spend time with family and friends.

Therefore, places where multiple people can enjoy are popular and easily crowded.

On the contrary, even during Golden Week, a calm place that can be enjoyed by one or two people may be a leisurely sightseeing spot.

Have lots of fun and make great memories!
