The “Silver week”(continous public holidays of a couple of days in  September) of this year 2015 was of  5 straight public holydays , which was the longest one in over  past  six years. The new law of public holidays can make fluctuation  continuous or continual  holidays depending on situations each year and 2008 was the first longest silver week of 5 days since the legal changes. And after the one this year, the next longest week will come in 11 years from now in 2026 according to the calendar.

This year, the days of 19 th (Sat) -23rd (Wed.)  were all holidays ! And a lot of people enjoyed the “big” Silver Week. For example, the number of tourists to Kanazawa, where  the new Hokuriku Shinkansen (Bullte Trains)services started this March, and Ishikawa Pref. as a whole, and its  neighbouring prefectures of Toyama and Fukui, all of which are part of Hokuriku or  the North Central region, increased by 4 times compared to the number  of the same time last year.
