If I were to receive complimentary plane tickets, there’s no doubt in my mind that I would return to Japan, my beloved homeland. No matter how many times one visits, Japan never loses its charm. There are countless places still left to explore, especially for those who think they’ve seen it all.
During the summertime, almost every day is marked with vibrant events. From local summer festivals and shrine celebrations to major music festivals, the spirit of the season is alive and well throughout the country. The allure doesn’t end there. Camping trips, riverside BBQs, and spending time with family and old friends from town are just a few of the joys that summer in Japan has to offer.
One of the top activities this time of year is hiking up Mount Fuji, the tallest mountain in Japan. While the peak might greet you with chilly winds, the experience of watching the sunrise – or “Goraikou” as we call it – will undoubtedly warm your spirit, making any cold temperatures seem insignificant.
Tokyo, with its modern allure and bustling streets, is a must-visit. Yet, it’s essential not to overlook the charm of the other regions, each offering its unique appeal and experiences.
I sincerely invite you to explore Japan. Whether it’s your first time or a returning visit, the land of the rising sun never ceases to amaze.
Thank you for reading this article and considering my homeland as your next destination.
