have your say

There is a 69-day wait from the end of Golden Week to the July 16 national holiday. June has no holiday, but if one were to be adopted, what do you think it should be called?

Rain day?

June would be perfect for a “let me rest, I’m fckn tired” day.

I suppose the obvious one would be Midsummer Day. It's suitably neutral; carries no expectations.

Actually on June 10th, there is this thing called Time Remembrance Day.

If people are tired, they should take paid leave. No more national holidays please. If kids are tired from school, tell them to not do their homework. It won't kill them.

Install huge fines for companies that refuse to honour paid leave. Make it socially unacceptable to resent coworkers taking leave. As a sweetener make it easier for companies to lay off unproductive or uncooperative workers.

Make it the second Monday in June and call it. The National long weekend.

We've got Ocean and Mountain Days just afterward, so perhaps Air Day might be fitting.

Or Midsommar (ooh scary).

Just call it something like what the British do, June Bank Holiday. What's the Japanese equivalent? Government office? 官公庁の日? June Government Office Holiday? Very catchy.

6月9日 would be the perfect holiday in this declining-child-birth society.

Show a little respect for the people of Okinawa and make June 23rd, currently a prefectural holiday, into a national holiday.

For those that dont know, June 23rd is the universally accepted, official, last day of the Battle of Okinawa.

6月9日 would be the perfect holiday in this declining-child-birth society.

June 9th is also Masako sama's birthday and it would be extremely disrespectful to her.
