Public holidays in Japan

In Japan every year there are 15 holidays (at the time of 2014) called “National holiday” is specified in the constitution.

In the past, there was a public holiday to hold festivals but after the war these days were abolished, so there were no more statutory festivals.

If the holiday coincides on a Sunday, it will be compensated on the second day of the following week. In addition, depending on the year, there will be cases where a normal day is alternated between two holidays. Then, that normal day will be regarded as a national holiday.

Furthermore, from 2016 onwards, August 11th will be “Mountain Day”, and is considered a holiday of the year.
