The Japan Calendar Publishers Association has issued a warning about the 2021 public holiday dates contained in most Japanese calendars and diaries for 2021, as many of the Japan Calendar Publishers Association members began printing 2021 calendars as early as late 2019, and as late as the spring of 2020, months before the July 19 and October 11, 2021, public holidays were amended by the government.

Recall that, late last year (2020-11-27, 2020-11-27 and 2020-06-10), the Japanese Government amended the list of 2021 public holidays, due to the postponement of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (2020-03-26) and the 4 related public holidays (令和三年東京オリンピック競技大会・東京パラリンピック競技大会特別措置法).

The Japan Calendar Publishers Association has posted an "important notice about calendar information" on its official website.
