    Kenmin no Hi


    Yesterday, I introduced Tomin no Hi (都民の日 – “Tokyo Citizens Day”), which was established for Tokyo citizens.

    In addition to Tokyo, 20 out of 46 prefectures have established the regional anniversary as Kenmin no Hi (県民の日 – “Prefecture Citizens Day”).

    Usually, the day when the prefecture or its name was borne is defined as Kenmin no Hi.

    However, except for Tokyo, only five prefectures (Chiba, Gunma, Ibaraki, Saitama, and Yamanashi) close most elementary, junior high, and high schools on that day.

    Incidentally, in Aichi where I grew up, there was no such a day.
