Considering that today is Easter Day for all Catholic and Evangelical Christians throughout the world (Easter is celebrated by Orthodox and Coptic Christians next Sunday), I thought I should start a thread to find out more about how Easter is celebrated in Japan.

I understand that there are Christian Japanese families and non-Christian families, but is Easter an official holiday recognized throughout the country? Do they have Easter discounts in stores, and Easter-themed commercials on TV?

Feel free to share anything you know about the way in which Easter is celebrated in Japan. It would be very informative. :unsure:
