Bunka no Hi

The essence of the holiday centers on the principles of “freedom,” “peace,” and “culture,” which originated from Japan’s post-World War II constitution. Bunka no Hi, established on November 3, 1946, and first observed in 1948, serves as a tribute to Japan’s declaration of sovereignty, peace, and pacifism. This holiday was born from the nation’s dedication to cultural advancement and also coincides with the birthday of Emperor Meiji on November 3.
