Public Holidays in Japan

If you plan to visit Japan, don't forget to consider the dates of the Japanese national, public or bank holidays. Japan has a variety of traditional national holidays so there is a good chance of there being at least one holiday during your stay there.

Holidays falling on a Sunday generate an additional compensation holiday the following day. Furthermore, any day that falls between two other national holidays also becomes a holiday, known as a bridge holiday.

See below for the full list of national holidays in Japan.
