In a word the typical Japanese business folk work too hard and too much. So much so they don’t even take all of their vacation days, with the average being just 8 days off per year! In an effort to get the workers to relax and perhaps be more productive the Japanese Government just announced the creation of the 18th national holiday called Yama Day or the day to celebrate the mountains of Japan. We recommend drinking sake on this Mountain Day and you can start with Otokoyama “Man’s Mountain” or Ohyama “Big Mountain”
