The Japanese Government has indicated that it is considering declaring Tuesday, October 22, 2019, as another one-off non-working public holiday in Japan, on account of the Sokuirei Seiden no Gi, the core ritual of the enthronement ceremonies, being held on that day.
The aforementioned announcement by the Japanese Government that it was considering Tuesday, October 22, 2019, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Japan, adds yet more uncertainty to the list of official national holidays, public holidays and bank holidays in Japan for the calendar year 2019, for which the Japanese Government has still not yet decided if it will declare May 1, 2019, as a public holiday or a national holiday (or, less likely, neither) on the occasion of Prince Naruhito's enthronement ceremony (18-Feb-2018, 01-Feb-2018 and 21-Dec-2017), and the possibility of April 30 and May 2, 2019, also being declared as one-off non-working public holidays in 2019 in Japan (06-Dec-2017 and 24-Jul-2016).
