Model Answers: Let’s Ask Keiji

  1. Yama no Hi. The English translation is "Mountain Day". It is on August 11. It is meant to celebrate nature, specifically mountains.
  2. My favourite holiday is Kenkoku Kinen no Hi, or "Foundation Day". My birthday is on February 11 so it means I get a holiday on my birthday ever year! My least favourite holiday is New Year. I think it is troublesome to go to my father's hometown every year to see my relatives.
  3. Melbourne Cup Day. It is held on the first Tuesday of November every year. It is celebrated as Australia's biggest horse race.
  4. I prefer winter holidays. I like to go snowboarding with my friend's family in Gifu every year.
  5. My family goes to Izu in Shizuoka every year for New Year. We usually eat a lot of seafood and osechi. I like seafood but I'm not a fan of osechi.
  6. My holiday would be called "Relax Week". It would be in the first week of October. People wouldn't have to attend school or go to work for seven days. They could enjoy the changing of the autumn leaves or just stay at home and relax.
