Kenkoku Kinen no Hi
National Foundation day

2023
(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.

Vernal Equinox Day
(Shunbun no Hi)
2022 
  When the sun crosses the equqtor,
day and night are of equal length...
however, this is not real. Because...
We offer to the spirits
of the ancestors and eat it. 
   

Higan no Chunichi
2022 彼岸の中日   
  Higan is the week-long period of Buddhist
memorial services centering on the
vernal and autumn equinoxes.
We still keep up custom to visit ancestors' grave with family during this period.

We offer and also eat "Ohagi (Botamochi)"
in Higan week.

Higan period in 2022 :March 18 - 24
  The proverb says,

"Atsusa samusa mo
higan-made."
暑さ寒さも彼岸まで

Neither summer heat nor winter
cold last after equinox.
