Yikes! Tomorrow August the 11th, is YAMJH—Yet Another Mysterious Japanese Holiday—Mountain Day…
…This year marks the first occurrence of Mountain Day (Yama no Hi, 山の日) since it is a brand-new national holiday for appreciating Japan’s mountains.
The new holiday is intended to coincide with the vacation time usually given during the Bon Festival (Japan’s Halloween-cum-return-of-spirits-of-the-dead) held in mid-August.
