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.
