May 4- Greenery Day (Midori no hi)

As the name suggests, the day is dedicated to commune with the environment and nature and to be thankful for the blessings. Started in the year 1989, after the death of the Showa Emperor, the day was celebrated on 29th April. But later on in 2007, Greenery Day moved to May 4 to acknowledge the Emperor’s love for plants and nature. Greenery Day is a third holiday of Japan Golden Week. It falls after Showa Day and Constitutional Memorial Day.
