What just passed in Japan?

Answer:  B - Autumnal Equinox
While the third Monday of September is for Respect of the Aged day, around the 23rd of September, the Autumnal Equinox is celebrated. People reconnect with families by tending to their ancestor’s graves along with visiting shrines and temples.

Japan has celebrated the Autumnal Equinox for centuries and as a national holiday since the Meiji period. Originally called Shuki Koreisai, it is believed to stem from Shintoism and Buddhism.
