The Bank of Japan (Japan's central bank) has released an amended version of its previously-released annual list of official national holidays, public holidays and bank holidays in Japan for the calendar year 2019, in which the December 23, Emperor's Birthday, annual public holiday of Japan is canceled.

Earlier this year (06-Jan-2018), the Bank of Japan (Japan's central bank) had released its annual list of official national holidays, public holidays and bank holidays in Japan for the calendar year 2019, in which the December 23 public holiday was included.

But, earlier this month (01-Feb-2018), the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan released an amended list of official national holidays and public holidays in Japan for the calendar year 2019, in which the December 23, Emperor's Birthday, annual public holiday of Japan was canceled.

Note that neither of these 2 aforementioned amended lists of official national holidays, public holidays and bank holidays in Japan for the calendar year 2019, makes any mention of the probable May 1, 2019, public holiday expected to be declared on the occasion of Prince Naruhito's enthronement ceremony (06-Dec-2017 and 24-Jul-2016).

In fact, just this past week, Yasuhiro Miyazaki, the chair of JCAL, a nationwide industrial association of about 30 Japanese calendar publishers, met Chief Cabinet Secretary, Yoshihide Suga, at the Prime Ministers Official Residence, to petition the Japanese government to decide, ASAP, whether or not the accession day of the new emperor on May 1, 2019, would be a national holiday.
