National Foundation Day (建国記念の日)

February 11 is National Foundation Day (建国記念の日, kenkoku kinen no hi) in Japan. Here are some (fun-)facts about this holiday:

  • It actually commemorates the enthronement of the legendary Emperor Jinmu (神武天皇) who, according to Shintō lore, lived sometime around the 7th or 6th century BC and was the son of the deity Hiko-nagisa-take-ugaya-fuki-aezu no mikoto (彦波瀲武盧茲草葺不合尊) and thus a descendent of the sun deity Amaterasu ō-mi-kami ( 天照大神).
