White Day in Japan

Last month, the people of Japan celebrated Valentine’s Day in much the same way we mark it here in the United States. One key difference is that it is generally the Japanese women who begift the men in their lives with special Valentine’s chocolates. It may seem one-sided, but the men have a chance to repay the women on March 14th, a day that the Japanese know as White Day.

White Day, exactly one month after Valentine’s Day, is the day when men who received chocolate from women on the traditional day of love are expected to give them white boxes of chocolate in return. These chocolates are generally priced slightly higher than the ones marked for the women to buy on Valentine’s Day.

Should you ever need a way to show your love to your special someone, consider a night at our Issaquah sushi restaurant. There’s nothing like an authentic meal of sushi and other traditional Japanese favorites to make your date night special.
