3rd November 2014

It was on 3rd November in 1946 that the present Constitution of Japan was officially announced. To honour this event, the date was made into a holiday two years later to foster the ideals of the Constitution – the love of peace and freedom – through cultural activities. Culture Day has been celebrated ever since. It is now one of the most important festivals in Asia.

Festivities customarily include parades, art exhibitions, and award ceremonies for distinguished artists and scholars. A variety of events are held on this sunny day, where local and prefectural governments hold art exhibitions, culture festivals, and parades, which showcase the costumes of the Edo Period.  Commonly, universities present their new research and projects on this day.
