May brings the reminder that in Japan, as in the United States, one of a nation’s greatest assets is her children. May 5 is “Children’s Day” in Japan, the day to stress the importance of respecting the character of children and promoting their health and happiness. It is also the day for children to express their gratitude for the tender love and care they receive from their parents.
The day is traditionally known as Boy’s Day in Japan, although as of late, is is known as “Childrens Day”. Call it what you want… have a good one!
