Apparently it's used for late night hours up to the small hours

For example : Open 10:00-25:00 = open 10am to 1am the next day

Thursday 25:00 = Friday 01:00

Yes, even 01:00am next day is 25:00, 02:00 am 26:00, and so on, for extended night activities.

Examples

+ : What time did you fell asleep last night?
- : 26:15.

"26:05 and still some work left!"

"Train will board at 23:05 and estimated to arrive at 25:55

But if wee hours used after sleeping (not extended night), the 1,2 am etc is used

Example : Woke up at 2 am
Not 26:00
etc

Interesting. I've never heard of it before. The only thing I know about "time" in Japan is they do use "military" time more frequently than compared to America and they do not adjust time/daylight savings.

I believe we are the only country, or one of a handful of countries, in the world that uses the 12h clock. In all of Europe they use the 24h clock.

Here is a map of countries showing their preference to 12 vs 24 hour clock http://cdn-media-1.lifehack.org/wp-c...d-1024x449.png
also according to Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/24-hour_clock countries that go beyond the 24:00 in certain aspects are the UK, Japan, Hong Kong, and China.
