  • Golden Week, often abbreviated to GW, is a Japanese term applied to the period containing the following public holidays: April 29 The Emperor's Birthday, until 1988 Greenery Day, from 1989 until 2006 Shōwa Day, from 2007 May 3 Constitution Memorial Day May 4 Citizen's Holiday, from 1985 until 2006 Greenery Day, from 2007 May 5 Children's Day, also customarily known as Boys' Day. Note that "kokumin no kyūjitsu" or "citizen's holiday" is a generic term for any official holiday. May 4 was until 2007 an unnamed but official holiday because of a rule that converts any day between two holidays into a new holiday. May Day is not a public holiday. Instead, Japan has Labour Thanksgiving Day, a holiday with a similar purpose. When a public holiday lands on a Sunday, the next day that is not already a holiday becomes a holiday for that year.
