Yes, everything is open! The weekend is when most people have time to go shopping. Hence, all the stores make sure to be open.

Almost all Japanese are not Christians,
so don't know the Sabbath.

@ japaneseboy

The sabbath is a Jewish event so most Christians don't know it either...

@Saru Bob
Oh, really?! My Japanese-English dictionary tell me a lie about 主の日(shu no hi).

I just want to say "Japanese don't know 主の日".
I learned that Sunday called 主の日 at church when I was a child.
We hymned "On 主の日, all people take a rest from work/study and calm at church 〜♪" in Japanese.
(I may be a Shinto but went to Catholic kindergarten.)

But that have no connection with PATRIZIA's query.
Sorry...(x_x;

I am aware that in many countries in Europe, especially the southern part, shops close on Sundays. That is definitely not the way it works in Japan.

well.. ok.. while the sabbath IS primarily a Jewish event lasting from sunset on a friday to sunset on a saturday, it can also be used to refer to Sundays in a christian context.

I don't want you to think that you were lied to at kindergarten!
