Mountain Day (山の日, yama no hi) is a new holiday in Japan that started in 2016. Since over 70% of the Japanese archipelago is mountainous, it only makes sense for a holiday to be dedicated to it. Likewise, Japan has a Sea Day as well.
Mountain Day is an occasion to appreciate all the beautiful peaks and the abundance of nature. Do you have a similar day in your region?
