As you may know, we, in Japan, have 'Golden Week' holidays. In this week, there
are several national holidays, and additional private, usually company, holidays.
Especially this year, because those natinal holidays starts from Wednesday till
Friday, most of Japanese company closes their office from that Wednesday till
Sunday. And, some of company closes Monday and Tuesday, too. In that case,
there are 9-days off.
Luckily, my dad has that 9days holiday, this year, and I enjoyed that, too.
