Bon Festival on July 15 (Kantō region, Japan);
Marine Day or Ocean Day or Sea Day in Japan on July 20 (is a Japanese national holiday celebrated on the third Monday in July);
Letter Writing Day in Japan on July 23 (The Letter Writing Day can be a bit confusing... as we found on numerous sites that this 'holiday' falls on 7th of December, then again on the official World Letter Writing Day page the date is 1st of September, and Japan issues LWD stamps each year, for over two decades now, on 23rd of July. In any case, its a nice way of reminding people of the existence of letters);
Hiroshima Peace Memorial Ceremony on August 6 (Hiroshima, Japan);
Nagasaki Memorial Day in Japan on August 9 (Nagasaki Peace Park is a park located in Nagasaki, Japan, commemorating the atomic bombing of the city on August 9, 1945 during World War II)
