Happy Marine Day everyone!
Marine Day (海の日, Umi no hi) is a Japanese national holiday celebrated on the third Monday in July. Many people take advantage of the holiday and summer weather to take a beach trip but I spent it indoors due to a weekend long rainstorm.
Marine Day was declared a national holiday in 1995. First observed on July 20, 1996, the Happy Monday Seido (ハッピーマンデー制度, Happi Mande Seido?) legislation moved the date from July 20 to the third Monday of July from 2003.
I did go to a Beach party, though not at the beach...
