The Bank of Japan (Japan's central bank) has released its official list of annual national holidays public holidays and bank holidays in Japan for the calendar year 2015.
As usual (2013-03-01, 2012-05-14 and 2011-11-25), 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 (2005-05-15, 2001-06-22 and 1998-10-23).
In 2015, a rare provision of the 2005 amendments (2005-05-15) to the Law on National Holidays of Japan will create a 5-day period of non-working public holidays in Japan in September. The last time this happened was in 2009, and it will not occur again until 2016.
