The planned decline of Japanese Culture by the governing class
Nothing dramatic but still more than noteworthy, the japanese government announced today that it planned on reviewing the holiday system, so as to have all the people NOT taking them during the same week in spring and in summer. It might not seem like much from the outside, but this is a major change in japanese culture as it is. In fact a survey just recently published, conveyed amongst 3000 men and women across Japan, shows that 56.1% are strongly against this proposition, with only 28% favorable.
The plan would be to split Japan into 5 distinct geographical regions, and distribute holiday seasons accordingly, but the government said that they are waiting for a consensus before applying anything.
