Everybody says “The Japanese works hard!”
That’s right!
But in this Japan, there are holiday week called “Golden week and silver week”!
In this year,most of companies will close from 2nd May to 6th May.
This is Golden week.

Normally,Working time in Japan is 5 days a week.
Saturday and Sunday is off.

2nd May…Saturday (weekly off)
3rd May…Sunday but Constitution Day (national holiday)
4th May…Greenery Day (national holiday)
5th May…Children’s Day (national holiday)
6th May…a substitute holiday of Constitution day.

Many Japanese go somewhere to travel with family.
Because it is very difficult to get off on normal day.
So there are no chance to travel except this Golden week.
But in this season, it become expensive travel fee, hotel fee…etc.

So you’d better to come to Japan except this holiday.
Because there are many people all over Japan like Easter!!

I have a barbecue on this Golden holiday:-)
