Ocean Day

The hot months are upon us, which means that Japan is looking forward to Umi no Ni. This holiday, often translated to either “Ocean Day” or “Sea Day”, is observed on the third Monday of July. The Japanese government first named it a national holiday back in 1995 to honor the ocean and give thanks for its bounty. To the Japanese people, this is a time to beat the summer heat with a trip to the beach.

Though we may not celebrate Ocean Day here in the United States, there’s no reason you can’t honor the ocean in your own way with a quality seafood meal at our Issaquah sushi restaurant. Come and taste the best that the sea has to offer at Aji Sushi & Grill!
