Silver Week holidays in Japan!
You may have heard of Golden Week, Japan’s four consecutive holidays from late April to early May, but you probably didn’t know that there is also a Silver Week which occurs once every few years in September. And, 2015 is one of those years. Yay!
Result : a 5-day holiday from Saturday 19th to Wednesday 23rd of September 2015.
Silver Week is named after Golden Week. It also has a double meaning: "silver" is a common word in Japanese to describe the older generation.
And what's the link? Respect for the Aged day is being celebrated on September 21st ;-)
With the moderate autumn temperature, it is considered one of the best times to enjoy traveling.
