Does this word mean also vacation, rest and break? Or is it just holiday?
It’s a day when you don’t work (or go to school or whatever your typical thing would be).
A holiday is a 休日 if you don’t work. So is the weekend. But those aren’t 休日 for you if you do work those days.
So it’s also a vacation day?
Assuming you don’t work on your vacation. It really is as simple as 休みの日. That’s the definition in Japanese.
