Kenkoku Kinen no Hi
National Foundation day

2017
(Feb. 11/annual)
Day for commemorating the foundation of the nation and for fostering patriotic feelings.

Kenkoku Kinen no Hi (建国記念の日)was called "Kigensetsu(紀元節)" before.
According to the Japanese historical legend, the Emperor Jinmu, the first Emperor of Japan,
ascended the throne on this day in the year 660BC. It was designated as Japan's Foundation Day
and became holiday by the Meiji Government in 1872.
The holiday was abolished after the World War II by the view of the occupation forces,
but was revived in 1966 as "Kenkoku Kinen no Hi/ The Memorial Day of the National Foundation", and executed from1967.
So this day is not a historical foundation day. Just the day to celebrate the fact that the nation was established.
