Nippon Keidanren and major banks in Japan on Wednesday launched a one-month trial daylight saving time period.

Under the "Eco-work month," at the Nippon Keidanren secretariat, work normally beginning at 9:30 a.m. was moved back one hour to 8:30 a.m.

Workers at Keidanren, whose aim is to promote economic growth and strengthen corporations to boost Japan's economy, started to filter in from about 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

"When you start early in the morning, it's refreshing and feels good," one of the workers said. (Mainichi)
