What is Golden Week in Japan?
Golden Week is basically a few public holidays grouped together within a span of roughly 1 week. The holidays comprised are:
- APRIL 29 Showa Day: Honoring the Emperor Hirohito.
- MAY 3 Constitution Memorial Day: Celebrates the Constitution of Japan in 1947.
- MAY 4 Greenery Day: Originally to celebrate the Emperor's Birthday, but the name was changed to reflect the Emperor's love of plants.
- MAY 5 Childrens Day: Otherwise known as "Boys day". Celebrates children's personalities and happiness.
So if you are considering coming to Japan around Golden Week, we suggest you plan ahead and book your accommodation early as well as reserving your train tickets where possible.
