Well, it's Easter, even if Google doesn't realize it. It's a quite important holiday in Christendom, and when I decided to look into it, I figured I'd find out that they celebrated it in some offbeat way in Japan. After all, they do Christmas and Valentine's Day. Oddly, though, it doesn't seem to appeal to them all that much. They are, however, deeply into rabbits. In fact, they see not a Man in the Moon, but a Rabbit in the Moon. From "Letsjapan":
With only a 2% Christian population, there’s not a lot of widespread Easter celebrating that goes on in Japan, although several million Japanese Christians have been celebrating and contemplating the season and churches will, of course, be packed on Easter Sunday from Sapporo to Saitama and from Kanagawa to Kyoto to Kagoshima.
Not a lot of Easter Bunny goings on in Japan, comparatively speaking. However, throughout the year, about once a month in fact, Japanese (and Chinese and Vietnamese and Koreans, virtually all East Asians…) think of bunny rabbits, or, more properly, one special bunny rabbit more than most Westerners. That one, special bunny rabbit is, of course, the Rabbit on the Moon. In Japanese the word for rabbit is “usagi” (うさぎ, or 兎) and when Japanese and other East Asia residents look up at a full moon, they don’t see a pockmarked man with a goofy smile staring (leering?) down at them, no, they see a cavorting rabbit. How about you?
So happy Japanese Easter, which you can think of as commemorating the Easter Bunny's evil twin, the Moon Bunny:
