Culture Day

Today is a national holiday in Japan - Culture Day or Bunka no Hi. The purpose of the holiday is to promote culture, the arts, and academic endeavour.  I have the day off from work and I am thinking about how I will spend it.  I've pulled out this UFO - the Kogin bag I started a long time ago. I don't know if I will keep working on it after today, but I figure working on a Japanese needlework technique today qualifies as culture.  



Depending on the weather today, I may go to a festival or I may stay home.  If I stay home and read a book, does that count as academic endeavor?

  4. Of course reading counts as a cultural activity! You only need to take one single stitch on the Kogin bag and you have celebrated Culture Day. Enjoy the holiday. Sunny and bright in Tokyo.
