4 February - Rissun - Early Spring
Since 1873, Japan has followed the same months as the Gregorian calendar, so January 1st is the official New Year's Day for Japan.
Traditional East Asian lunisolar calendars divide a year into 24 solar terms. Lìchūn, Risshun, Ipchun, or Lập xuân is the 1st solar term. It begins when the Sun reaches the celestial longitude of 315 and ends when it reaches the longitude of 330. It more often refers in particular to the day when the Sun is exactly at the celestial longitude of 315. In the Gregorian calendar, it usually begins around February 4 and ends around February 18.
