Marine Day

Today , people in Japan are celebrating Umi-No-Hi, that translates as Marine Day or Ocean Day, a holiday which expresses thanks for the blessings of the sea, as well as hopes for Japan’s economic prosperity.  The holiday is celebrated every year on the third Monday in July, and many celebrate by taking a day trip to the beach.
