Labor Thanksgiving Day (Kinro Kansha no hi)
Labor Thanksgiving Day (勤労感謝の日 Kinro Kansha no hi). As you can see Kinro Kansha no hi can be literally translated like "Labor Thanksgiving Day”. The end of November is the time for completion of agricultural works and excellent occasion to celebrate rich harvest. This holiday stemmed from Shinto tradition of thanksgiving to gods by presenting them with cropped food and rice ears. It is customary for Japanese to thank each other for help and assistance in one or another field of labor activities.
