National Foundation Day

The 11th of February is celebrated every year in Japan as National Foundation Day. It is in remembrance of the first emperor, Jimmu, who ascended to the throne this day. The current emperor is the successor of Jimmu and Japan is considered the country in the world with the longest consecutive history as one country.

We celebrated National Foundation Day with some extra tasty food. There is never a bad reason to celebrate, but a Japanese national day of celebrations is an extra good reason to celebrate. There are so many good things coming from Japan.
