Golden Week in Japan, a week in which several holidays are clustered together resulting in a week off for many, kicks off today with Greenery Day. Other Golden Week holidays are Constitution Day and Children's Day.
It's a bit crazy during holiday weeks in Japan...a bit like Thanksgiving weekend in the US. Everybody is traveling. Tokyo is an interesting place to be during the holidays because this very busy city suddenly loses like half its population. Many Tokyoites aren't from Tokyo, so many go back to their hometowns over the holidays. And many of those whose hometown is Tokyo head off somewhere else for a quick vacation.
I will be enjoying the relative peace and quiet in Tokyo during Golden Week, but I'll be on vacation from the internet. So, see you soon. Have a happy Golden Week!
