   In Jpan, since 29 sounds similar to meat (niku), the day 29 is regarded as the Meat Day. Therefore, many meat shops and restaurants offer coupons and cheaper prices for their meat menus. Usually, there is always One Meat Day every month, and in February, the 9th of February is the Meat Day (in Japan 9th of February is often written as 2月9日 ). 

 Since 2016 is a leap year which has the day of 29th February, there are two Meat Days in February (Smile). Moreover, 29th November is regarded as the ‘Good Meat Day’. If you want to enjoy meat at cheaper prices in Japan, please do pay attention to the 29th of every month.
