Every year on February 11th, Japan celebrates National Foundation Day. As a result of this event, the Japanese celebrate Emperor Jimmu’s foundation of Japan in 660 B.C. It is also known as Kenkoku Kinen No Hi, and it is an excellent opportunity to think about the difficulties the country’s founders faced. The Japanese have an opportunity to revive their patriotism and strengthen their passion for their homeland. National Foundation Day commemorates Emperor Jimmu’s ascent to the throne in 660 B.C., which laid the foundations for Japan. Jimmu, a descendant of the sun goddess Amaterasu, was born in Miyazaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu. He was regarded as one of the most fearless rulers in history. Jimmu started wars with nearly every tribe in the area at the time, and he won them all. Jimmu united Japan after defeating numerous clans. The “Kojiki” tells the story of Emperor Jimmu’s legacy. When Japan switched from a lunar to a Gregorian calendar under the Meiji rule in 1873, the dates were slightly shifted. The event has been moved to February 11th as a result.
