Japan Mulls 2020 Tokyo Olympics Public Holiday

A nonpartisan group of lawmakers plans to submit a national holidays reform bill to declare the opening day of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics as a one-off non-working public holiday national holiday in Japan.

The aforementioned declaration of a one-off non-working public holiday on Friday, July 24, 2020, the opening day of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, is reported to have the support of the Japanese government, and in particular that of Deputy Prime Minister, Taro Aso, who heads the group of lawmakers that was formed to help ensure the smooth running of the Games.

Apparently this one-off non-working public holiday in Japan in 2020 would be compensated. One of the ideas being floated around is to move the October Health-Sports Day annual public holiday of Japan, established to commemorate the opening day of the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, to July 24.
