Japan's Parliament has enacted legislation to declare 3 one-off national non-working public holidays in Japan on account of the upcoming 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, to alleviate traffic congestion in the metropolitan area.

Last April (30-Apr-2018), we had reported how Japanese lawmakers were finalizing details of the draft legislation which would declare 3 one-off non-working public holidays in Japan on account of the upcoming 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, following the recommendation by a nonpartisan group of lawmakers headed by Toshiaki Endo, the former minister in charge of the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games (22-Aug-2017), which were then extended with the announcement of 2 more non-working public holidays to flank the Tokyo 2020 Olympics’ opening and closing ceremonies in Japan (26-Sep-2017).
