This week, 28 April through 06 May, is Golden Week in Japan. The holidays are:
- Showa Day on Sunday 29 April (observed on Monday 30 April);
- Constitution Memorial Day on Thursday 03 May; and
- Greenery Day on Friday 04 May.
The middle bit are usually two vacation days. Some have to work but can telecommute, which is acceptable. Some poor souls have to go into the office for those two days.
I thought I was going to be one of those poor souls, but my project is in a holding pattern. That is great as I can take the days off, but sadly I couldn’t plan for a week-long vacation like I did last year in Kyoto, Nara, and Osaka.
Shed no tears: there are so many events happening in and around Tokyo this week plus the day tripper opportunities abound. Keep an eye on my feed for the “where is he now” updates.
