It is a national hoiday called kinro kansha no hi (勤労感謝の日), Labour Thanksgiving Day.
This year it falls on the same day of Thanksgiving of the United States. I miss Turkey Dinner.
It was heavily raining this morning but became fine in the afternoon and rained again in the evening.
In the afternoon I went to a study meeting to improve presymptomatic disease, the life style not to be beaten by cancer.
It started at 13:30. There were three parts, First: greeting by city mayor, Second: special session by Mr. Shonosuke Okura and Mr.Hiroyuki Watanabe, Third: lecture "Life Style not to Be Beaten by Cancer" by Dr.Yoshinori Nagumo. There was a hula dance show too.
It was a very informative useful lecture.
I was very surprised to hear that special session was not practiced before.
After the event I bought a book written by Dr. Nagumo and he autographed the book. I read it at night. The contents were almost the same as lecture.
All men on the stage were 62 years old but they looked far much younger than they are.
I met a friend later and went shopping.
It was a nice holiday.
