Australian employers offer the highest level of statutory holiday leave to employees in the Asia-Pacific region, but rank among the lowest compared to western European countries.

    Actually Japan is 10 days annually in your 1st year of employment. This increases 1 day per year of service with a maximum of 20.

    It is also highly unlikely that employees actually take this amount of leave unless of course you're an EX-pat or are being paid out after your resignation.

    While the number of Stat holidays are low for APAC countries,namely HK 14 - 15. They receive 16 public holidays while AU receive 9. There is only a difference of 1 -2 days.
