Japan’s Kinro Kansha No Hi: The Japanese Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is obviously a purely American celebration, but did you know that Japan has a similar holiday? On November 23, Japan has a national holiday called “Kinro Kansha No Hi”, or “Thanksgiving Labor Day”. Originally a Shinto harvest festival, the holiday was adapted after World War II to honor the nation’s workforce and reflect on the importance of worker’s rights. Most Japanese celebrate by paying a visit to a local temple, and children make cards for local policeman. The picture above, taken in Meiji Shrine in Harajuku, honors the traditional harvest aspect of the festival.
From the Office of International Education, happy holidays.
