Japan is a great place for National Holidays. They crop up all the time. They sneak up behind you and go “Boo!” when you least expect it. Today is one such. It is Ocean Day.
Marine Day (海の日 Umi no Hi?), also known as “Ocean Day” or “Sea Day”, is a Japanese national holiday celebrated on the third Monday in July. The purpose of the holiday is to give thanks to the ocean’s bounty and to consider the importance of the ocean to Japan as an island nation. Many people take advantage of the holiday and summer weather to take a beach trip. Other ocean-related festivities are observed as well.
Accordingly I do lots of sea stuff. World famous photographer Satoru san is still here and comes in very useful.
Thank you Ocean Day.
