  July 20th and August 1st are Doyou-no-Ushi-no-Hi. 'Doyou' means
midsummer and 'Ushi-no-Hi' is the day(s) of ox. You often see ad posters
with this word along with the picture of eels. On these two days people eat
eels. How did this custom happen?
   There seems to be several stories. The most popular one goes as follows.
   During Edo period, late 1700's, an eel restaurant owner, who was
struggling with business, asked Dr. Gennai Hiraga for advice. He suggested
to put up the sign showing 'Today's Ushi-no-Hi', because people believed
eating something starting with 'u' on Ushi-no-Hi gives them strength to
fight the heat. This ad had a great effect and the restaurant owner gained
a thriving business.

 June is a rainy month in Japan. ‘The rainy reason’ is written ‘梅雨’ and read ‘tsu₋yu’ or ‘bai₋u’. ‘梅’ is plum and ‘雨’ is rain. Therefore, ‘梅雨’ is believed to originally mean the rainy season when plums are ripe.
Japan is latitudinally long and the Meteorological Agency declares each local date of the beginning and the end of ‘tsu₋yu’. When the warm and damp air from the south meets the cold and damp air from the north, ascending air current occurs and it causes rain. When the warm air and the cold air collide above near Japan, the seasonal rain front appears and gives long rain.
Now, national holidays. We have many national holidays in Japan. June, however, is the only month that has no holidays. But we have the anniversary of opening the Yokohama Port. Many events are held in Yokohama on the 1st and the 2nd of June, such as amphibious bus tours at Rinkou Park.

Thursday, June 7th and Friday, June 8th   No school
Sunday, June 17th    Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students (EJU)

Ngày nghỉ cuối cùng trong Tuần lễ vàng(Kì nghỉ nhiều ngày từ cuối tháng 4 đến đầu tháng 5 hàng năm) là ngày Thiếu nhi(Ngày 5 tháng 5). Cùng với ý nghĩa nhắc nhở mọi người cần trân trọng sự hình thành nhân cách cũng như hạnh phúc của trẻ em, đây còn là ngày để gửi lời cảm tạ tới những người mẹ. Từ thời cổ đại , vào ngày 5 tháng 5, giống như Lễ hội kỷ niệm ngày của các bé trai(Tango no sekku), người ta tổ chức Lễ cầu nguyện cho các bé được lớn lên 1 cách khỏe mạnh . Người ta cũng trang trí cờ cá chép vào ngày này. Trong lịch sử xưa kia của Trung Quốc, có tương truyền truyền thuyết của Đăng Long Môn, về việc cá chép hóa rồng sau khi vượt qua được thác nước dữ dội(Thác Long Môn), và lên được trời. Ở Nhật, vào thời Edo, dựa theo truyền thuyết Đăng Long Môn, phong tục treo cờ cá chép đã được hình thành với mong muốn cầu nguyện để con cái dù sinh sống trong bất kì môi trường nào cũng có thể chịu được và trưởng thành một cách mạnh mẽ. Về màu sắc tượng trưng của cá, thì phổ thông nhất là cá chép đen là bố, cá chép đỏ là mẹ, cá chép xanh là con.
・Ngày 2 tháng 5(Thứ 4)  Hội thao (Nếu trời mưa sẽ hủy)
・Tuần lễ vàng            Theo lịch của Nhà trường(Ngày 1,2 tháng 5, vẫn có tiết học như bình thường.

  The last day of the Golden Week, which consists of multiple holidays from the end of April through the beginning of May, is the Children’s Day. The purpose of the day is to respect children’s personalities, celebrate their happiness, and thank their mothers. May 5th was originally called ‘Tango-no-Sekku’ and has been celebrated to wish boys’ healthy growth. We raise ‘koi-nobori’, carp-shaped streamers on the Children’s Day. This custom is based on an old Chinese legend. One strong carp ran up an intense waterfall and became a dragon which eventually went up to heaven. This tale is called ‘Toryumon’ and people in Edo period in Japan wished their boys success in life, biting all the bullets just like this ‘Toryumon’ carp. This is how they started to put up the streamers. Black carp represents fathers, red ones mothers, and blue ones are their offspring.

                            We have school on the 1st and 2nd of May

 When did April become the start of school in Japan?
   It is said that children first started to go to private schools held at shrines in Edo Period. They did not exactly determine the first day of school then and pupils were admitted all year round. Around the beginning of Meiji Period, they followed the West and September became the start of school year. Later on, according to the terms of fiscal year of England, which was the center of developed countries, Japanese government determined to start its fiscal year on the first of April. Elementary schools followed this rule and began to start school year in April. In Taisho Period, all high schools and universities followed them.
   Let’s see when schools start in other countries.
January…Singapore
March…Korea
May…Thailand
June…Philippines
September…USA, Canada, England, France, Belgium, Turkey, Mongolia, Russia, China, Vietnam

  March 21st is the Vernal Equinox Day, when the lengths of the day and the night are equal. Ohigan is the weeks surrounding the Vernal Equinox Day and the Autumnal Equinox Day to hold Buddhistic memorial services for the ancestors.
 The offerings at Ohigan period is nothing but “Bota-mochi” or “Ohagi”. These are the same thing but called in different names. At vernal Ohigan, we call it “Bota-mochi”. Bota is from Botan, a peony, which blooms in spring. At autumnal Ohigan, we eat “Ohagi”. Hagi is a bush clover and it is beautiful in autumn.

“Valentine’s Day of Japanese style” is one of the events that private companies started. It is the day when women give men chocolate with love. It can be called a national event now since the 20% of annually consumed chocolate is purchased on this day. In Japan, Valentine’s Day began to be popular around 1958 and gained a foothold in late 1970’s. It is said a confectionary company in Oota ward first devised an idea of giving chocolate on Valentine’s Day.
 There are some names in chocolate gifts according to the sender’s purpose. “Honmei choco” is be-my-Valentine chocolate to confess how a sender feels. “Giri choco” is a an obligatory chocolate gift and “Tomo choco” is sent and received among friends, usually girls. When a guy gives a girl chocolate, it is called “Gyaku choco” meaning reversed chocolate. There even is reward chocolate called “Gohoubi choco” to reward yourself.  Will you give or receive chocolate, too?

It’s the New Year. The New Year’s Day is a national holiday and its purpose is to celebrate the beginning of the year. Do you know the difference between ‘Ganjitsu’ and ‘Gantan’? “Gantan” actually means the morning of the New Year’s Day. The Chinese character of “gan” means the beginning and that of “tan” consists of the sun and a line underneath meaning the sun rising just above the horizon early in the morning. Therefore, “Gantan” originally means the morning of the New Year’s Day. Now it is commonly used just as the same as “Ganjitsu”, the New Year’s Day.
Monday, January 1st     New Year’s Day
Monday, January 8th     Coming-of-Age Day (national holiday)
Tuesday, January 9th     School starts.
 Write down your New Year’s resolution on a piece of paper and post it on the wall. It is said a dream comes true once it is written on paper. Give it a try.

 December’s other name in Japanese is Shiwasu. ‘Shi’ is teacher and ‘wasu’ is to run in Chinese characters. It is often believed to be the original meaning that even calm teachers run for errands during this busy month.
   In December, we have Christmas, year-end cleaning and the watch-night bell. People ring the bells from the late New Year’s Eve through the early New Year’s Day at shrines all over the country. In Yokohama, however, the whistle of the New Year’s Eve is symbolic. Hikawamaru at Yamashita Park and many other ships at the port welcome the beginning of the New Year by whistling at midnight. People, on the other hand, sing ‘Akai kutsu’, an old Japanese nursery rhyme about a girl in red shoes at Yokohama port. This famous event is called ‘Yokohama Marchen’ and takes place around the statue of ‘The Girl in Red Shoes’ in Yamashita Park.
   Please enjoy Japanese seasonal events during the winter break.

  November’s other name is ‘Shimo-tsuki’ or ‘Frost-month’, because of its frostiness. Frost is a form of water in the air crystalized in or on the ground.
   November 7th of this year is Ritto, the first day of winter. ‘Ritsu’, the first Chinese character of ‘Ritto’, means the beginning of the new season. The temperature falls every morning and evening and the sunlight gradually weakens. Soon will we feel the wintery wind and receive the news of the first snowfall.
