Valentine's Day in Japan

From the Wall Street Journal blog, Japan Real Time:

"In Japan, the burden falls on the woman to shower the men in her life with chocolates. And in another departure from the Western tradition, it is a gesture that sings a more obligatory note than a lover’s serenade."

(UPDATE: My friends on Facebook pointed me to "White Day," which takes place a month after Valentine's. I'm not surprised there is an answer day. My thanks to Chris and Liz for pointing this out!)
