Golden Week Shutdown

If you need to order something from an online Japanese shop, you probably should do it within the next 24 hours if you want it soon, as next week is Golden Week, when many businesses shut down for the entire week.

Golden Week is a collection of unrelated holidays: Showa Day on April 29th (reflection upon the Showa era), Constitution Memorial Day on May 3rd,  Greenery Day on May 4th (celebrating nature), and Boys' Day on May 5th. It's also one of the longest vacation periods in the calendar year, when a lot of people travel and take vacations.
