Taisho (大暑)

“Taisho” is known to be the hottest day of the year in Japan.
It’s on July 23 this year.
Many people do “Uchimizu” which is sprinkling water on the ground or on the street to lessen the heat.
A number of studies proved that the temperature did fall for about 1-2℃, thereafter.

“Taisho” is also known as “Tempura Day”.
Nobody knows when the trend has started, but oddly enough, many people eat tempura to overcome the blistering weather.

For the odd same reason, people eat eels on “Ushi no hi” which is held on July 25.
Eels make for delicious meals in summer.
These customs have been observed since 1772.
People have worked out these ideas to survive the intense heat.

June is a special month in Japan. Do you know why?
June is the only month that doesn’t have a holiday. It means every month except June has a holiday.
Japan ranked first out of 12 countries in terms of number of national holidays. However, when it comes to the number of used paid holidays, Japan ranked as the second worst.

According to statistics, approximately 60% of people feel guilty when taking paid holidays.
Everyone can enjoy a good number of national holidays, but only a few people take on the opportunity to do so.
