The Bank of Japan (Japan's central bank) has released its annual list of official national holidays, public holidays and bank holidays in Japan for the calendar year 2017.

As usual (11-Jan-2015, 09-Jan-2014, 01-Mar-2013, 14-May-2012 and 25-Nov-2011), apart from the year-end banks-only holidays, the aforementioned announcement follows the list of official Japanese non-working public holidays as amended over the last decade (15-May-2005, 22-Jun-2001 and 23-Oct-1998).

In 2017, Japan will have been observing a new annual Japanese non-working public holiday (01-Jun-2014, 23-May-2014, 30-Apr-2014, 06-Mar-2014 and 03-Jun-2013) on August 11, since 2016, known as Mountain Day (Yama no Hi), thus adding one annual non-working public holiday in Japan, Mountain Day, in analogy to the Marine Day Japanese public holiday, enacted in 1995 and observed for the first time on July 20, 1996, whereby, on the third Monday in July, people are encouraged to take a trip to the beach.
