Japan doesn’t hold back with winter illuminations. Experience a sea of lights at Hakkeijima’s Night Aquarium Paradise!
The other day, we – Sam and Tuna – embarked on a 2-hour bus ride from Tokyo to Ibaraki prefecture for the “Kochia Carnival” to see cute, plump red kochia bushes grown in abundance at Hitachi Seaside Park (国営ひたち海浜公園).
It is almost the end of Summer. If you visit Japan during the period, you might see Japanese people walking the parade and carrying Golden Wagon along the street.
You might wonder what are they doing? Is it okay to join the parade?
With September starting, it is officially autumn in Japan!
The heat has started to drop back, making it easier to enjoy time outside.
Last week, I had the chance to participate in the World Cosplay Summit in Nagoya.
This event was held for the first time in 2003 and since then it has grew into the biggest cosplay event in Japan with many cosplayers from all around the world coming to Japan to compete in the Cosplay Championship.
Have you ever heard or been to the Chubu Region?
According to unofficial statistics, the answer for that answer is probably ‘NO!’.
Yes, not many people know about the Chubu Region. But once you mention about places like Shirakawa-go and Takayama, I bet lots of people actually do know about it.
