Today is Marine Day in Japan and a public holiday!
I was researching Marine Day and there is a good connection to Scotland. To quote Wikipedia: “Communications Minister Shozo Murata designated the day in 1941 to commemorate the Meiji Emperor and his 1876 voyage in the Meiji-Maru, an iron steamship constructed in Scotland in 1874″
The iron boat was built in Glasgow and is now in dry dock in Tokyo.
The day is a day to be thankful for all that comes from the sea and many people go to the beach.
