Marine Day (Umi no Hi)

Marine Day (海の日, Umi no Hi). It is a relatively new holiday and it was called Marine Memorial Day (海の記念日 Umi no Kinen Bi) until 1996 when it became a public national holiday with a fixed date on July 20. As a result of amendments to the Public Holiday Law this holiday has been celebrated on the third Monday of July since 2003. For sure this is a momentous day for those people whose profession is inseparably linked with the sea, but for most Japanese, however, it is an additional holiday they wait as a signal for summer recreation.
