Constitution Memorial Day is a national holiday in Japan. It takes place on May third( Sat),in celebration of the Constitution of Japan. In 1948 it was first regconised as a holiday.
This day occurs because when America bombed Japan in the end of WWll to prevent the Japanese army from taking over the world. It created chaos and wiped out most of japans' civilization. As a result America, Britain and Australia agreed to help rebuild Japan. On one condition, that they would change the way they ran the country.
That is why the Diet building is there,basically for their parliament. This is the only day of the whole year that the diet building is open to the public. It is open for people to visit to show the day Japan changed. A lot of families walk through the halls that are usually off-limits to ordinary people.
