Learn Japanese - Easter - イースター

Ever wondered how Easter is celebrated in Japan?  As Christianity is not popular in Japan and only about 1 percent of the population are Christians, Japanese Government does not observe Easter. However, it doesn't mean Japanese don't celebrate Easter. They only do it in a different way, a highly commercialized way.
