Yesterday was Halloween. In a previous post, Halloween In Japan, I talked about Halloween in Japan. Today is November 1st and we in America have Thanksgiving coming up in just a few short weeks. Japan on the other hand has another holiday in just a couple days. November 3rd is Culture Day in Japan. It is a day that is set aside to celebrate culture, the arts, and academics.
Culture Day is also known as Banka no hi and was established in 1948. To help Japan celebrate their culture I have included some photos I found around the web. Hope you all enjoy the photos.
