How have you been?
I am looking forward to Golden week which begins on Saturday, April 27th this year. I won't be back at the university until May 7th. (I will have 10 days off.) See the calendar below:
Apr. 27 Saturday
Apr. 28 Sunday
Apr. 29 Showa Day (national holiday)
Apr. 30 Coronation Day holiday
May 1 Coronation Day
May 2 Coronation Day holiday
May 3 Constitution Memorial Day (national holiday)
May 4 Greenery Day (national holiday)
May 5 Sunday and Children's Day (national holiday)
May 6 Monday and Substitute holiday for Children's Day
The new Emperor and Empress will be seated on May 1st this year and the two days before and after it will be a public holiday. Almost all the people in Japan will be able to enjoy a 10-day holiday.
I have not made any special plans, but will very much enjoy the ten days off. I hope to write to you again during the Golden week.
Love to hear from you,
