Our National Foundation Day (in Japan) by using my old post(2012)
"The origin of Japanese National Foundation Day (February 11th) is New Year's Day in the traditional lunisolar calendar. On that day, the foundation of Japan by Emperor Jimmu (first Emperor) was celebrated based on Nihonshoki (日本書紀), which states that Emperor Jimmu ascended to the throne on the first day of the first month (around BC.660). In the Meiji period (19th century), the Japanese government designated the day as a National Holiday."
