In japan, 3rd Monday of July is a national holiday. It called Marine day(海の日).
After the Marine day many people go to the sea, because water temperature become warm. So let me introduce about the best bathing place(海水浴場) in Japan.
Nisihama beach is known for the most beautiful beach in Japan. It is located in Hateruma island. It takes 5 or 6 hours from Tokyo to Hateruma island. It is not so far, but you have to take not only airplane but also ship and bus.
There are not so many building or people in Hateruma island, so you can just relax and enjoy the Nishihama beach.

Tomioka Silk Mill


3189185I’m going to talk about Tomioka Silk Mill. Tomioka Silk Mill is in Gunma, Japan. It became a world heritage last month. We can see that mill so many tourist go there.

Tomioka Silk Mill was founded in 1872. It was Meiji period in Japan. At that time, Japan was the Meiji Restoration so the mill produced too many silks and exported to Europe and the United States. The mill was so busy and didn’t have enough workers so too many women worked there like slaves.

10000147_3460_1I heard “Ah Nomugi Touge” was showed about women who working at Tomioka Silk Mill. It was old movie so I didn’t real information.






In summer we can go to many festivals in Japan. Let me introduce about Japanese summer festival.

At first I will talk about clothes. When people go to festival, many people wear “Yukata”. “Yukata” is a casual traditional clothing that is similar to “kimono”. It is made of a light material to stay cool in the summer, but the most important thing is not functual. Especially for girls, the most important thing is showing themselves more cuter than usual day.

Second I will talk about food cart. There are a lot of fod carts belong the road, we can eat many kind of foods during the festival. I think most famous food is “shaved ice topped with flavored syrup”. Usually there are 4 or 5 kinds of syrup, and we can shouse any syrup from those syrup. Of cause we can chose more than 2 syrup. For example: Lemon and cola.

Third I will talk about fire work. I think Japanese fire work is really nice and beautiful. It has really long history. The beginning of fire works is Edo. Now we can go to many fire works festival. One of the most famous fireworks festival in Japna is “Sumida river fire works festival”. This festival set off fireworks more than 20000 times.

     There are many good points about Japanese festival. Why don’t you experience cool of the evening in JAPAN.

societyJapanese national animation, “Doraemon” starts broadcasting in this summer in the U.S. “Doraemon” are already been broadcasting in 35 countries in the world and just lines are translated into other languages. However some scenes are changed to broadcast “Doraemon” in the U.S. This is because obesity is big problem in the U.S, so some scenes which Doraemon eats a lot of dorayaki are cut. Also names of the characters and the tools which are come out from Doraemon’s pocket are changed like Nobita as Noby, Jyaian as Big G, Dekisugi-kun as Ace and Dokodemo-doa as Anywhere Door. I’m glad that Doraemon is watched in many countries and I hope American people like it.
