Holiday Caprice (休日の奇想曲 〜caprice〜, Kyūjitsu no Kisōkyoku ~caprice~?) is the fourth episode of the 2006 anime series Kanon.


Yuichi reminisces about events of the past seven years ago concerning his first meeting with Ayu, promising to meet her at the benches in front of the train station to eat taiyaki again. Yuichi is awoken by Makoto, who attempts to prank him by putting a slice of konnyaku on his face. The next day, Yuichi returns to school to give Nayuki her lunch. On his way back home, Yuichi runs into Ayu again, who then offers to help him get settled into the Minase Residence. Nayuki makes Yuichi return to school to retrieve her school notes she borrowed to him so she can finish her homework. After retrieving Nayuki's notes, Yuichi spots third year student Mai Kawasumi standing in the middle of the hall, wielding a sword.
