The National Astronomical Observatory of Japan and the Government of Japan have issued a revised list of the annual list of official national holidays, and public holidays in Japan for the calendar year 2020.

Recall that, contrary to the usual routine (2019-02-01, 2018-01-06, 2017-01-08, 2016-01-10, 2015-01-11, 2014-01-09, 2013-03-01, 2012-05-14 and 2011-11-25) whereby, apart from the year-end banks-only holidays, the announcement of annual public holidays in Japan followed 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 2020, there will be 3 changes of public holidays dates in Japan due to the Tokyo Olympics (2018-06-13, 2018-04-07, 2017-12-06, 2017-10-03, 2017-08-22).
