Return to all

– June 1, 2021 –

June 10th is Toki-no-kinenbi, or Time Day, in Japan. Although it is not a national holiday, Time Day is known to every Japanese as the date to think about the importance of time and being on time.

Time Day was created in 1920 by the Japanese Government to reinforce the mind of punctuality among Japanese people. Nowadays, Japan has one of the most punctual public transportation systems in the world, and it is largely due to the campaign which started 100 years ago.

On June 10th let’s check our conventional clock for its punctuality and try to be on time for all appointments and plans made for yourself!
