Happy Mother’s Day! - JAPAN CRAZE Magazine vol.28 -

The second Sunday of May is "Mother's Day" in Japan.
When researching, it seems that many countries have a similar day for mothers, but the date varies depending on the country. Unfortunately, for those in countries where Mother's Day has already passed this year, please use this article as a reference for next year 😅


What do we do for Mother's Day in Japan?

In Japan, it is common to give carnations to mothers along with words of gratitude for their daily blessings.
Other gifts are also given to celebrate the occasion, such as something they like or something that will make them happy.

Children make handmade gifts such as a portrait or a message card of their mother, or "Chore Coupons" ( coupons that the mother can use to ask for help) to give to their mother on Mother's Day.

According to a 2021 report by Cross Marketing Inc., a private Japanese marketing research firm, published in the Japan Marketing Research Association (JMRA), the number of respondents who visited their mothers and had dinner together was low at that time, as they were less likely to see their families living apart due to the pandemic. Therefore, although few respondents celebrated by visiting their mothers or having a meal together, the most common response by far was "giving gifts".
