Culture Day - National Holiday
November 3, 2017 N/A
Culture Day, otherwise known as Bunka no hi, is a day to honour traditional Japanese culture and promote the love of freedom and peace that was enshrined in the Japanese constitution.
The current Japanese constitution was officially adopted on 3 November 1946 after the end of the Second World War and Culture Day has been a holiday since 1948.
But that’s not all, 3 November is a notable date in Japan as it also marks the date of birth of Emperor Meiji, who ruled Japan from 1867 until 1912.
