Most businesses in America either take Sunday or Monday as their day off, right? We don't have god in Japan, so I think most businesses take Mondays off (but I'm not an authority on this).

Today I noticed something different about our community, which depends heavily on tourism dollars. Tourists usually come during or surrounding weekends. So the businesses that depend solely on tourists - our photo gallery, a drink shop, some restaurants - take Wednesdays off because Wednesdays are as far from the weekend as you can get.
