”Golden Week” has gone.
I don’t know what is “golden” about it, wherever I go I have to see crowds. Of course, there are lots of events going on and it will make things a little more interesting.
I read the term Golden Week originally comes from a film distributor’s campaign in the 1950’s.
During Golden Week I saw the Japanese flag flying in front of someone’s house and it caught my attention because it’s something I haven’t seen for a long long time. When I was little it was easy to know when it was a national holiday as every house used to fly a flag. The custom has all but died out and it’s hardly seen nowadays.
