On September 22nd, 23rd or 24th, the Autumnal Equinox is celebrated as a national holiday in Japan. In Japan, this holiday is known as 'Shūbun-no-hi'.
The sun rises exactly in the east and sets exactly in the west on this day, making day and night equal in length.
Autumnal Equinox Day was established as a national holiday in 1948. Before then, the autumnal equinox was an imperial ancestor worship festival called 'Shūki kōrei-sai' and the holiday had its roots in Shinto traditions as a time to give thanks to the deities for a successful harvest. Because of this, we usually drink a lot of sake on this day.
The equinoxes are also a special time for Buddhists who traditionally these periods as days when the border between the worlds of the living and the dead is at its thinnest, making the equinoxes important days to honour ancestors and remember the dead. So we visit the graves of our ancestors.
This also involves Silver Week is “Respect for the Aged” day where we honor senior citizens. Japan has an increasing elderly population. Since 1963 the Japanese has given a silver sake cup to Japanese who reach 100 years old. Japans elderly population as risen, attributed to a healthy diet, good exercise, and many ways of keep an active mind which include, games, gardening, farming, etc.
