The Bank of Japan (Japan's central bank) and the Government of Japan have released the annual list of official national holidays, public holidays and bank holidays in Japan for the calendar year 2021.

The 2020 list of Japanese public holidays was modified 3 times to accommodate the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (2019-06-17, 2019-04-17, 2018-06-13, 2018-04-07, 2017-12-06, 2017-10-03, 2017-08-22).

But, for 2021, the announced list of Japanese bank holidays and public holidays is back to the usual routine (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).
