In Japan, the summer holidays can be a riot for those who are ready to endure some sun and humidity. There are concerts and fireworks and unique summer street food to allow the most use of the Japanese free time for their children from 20 July to August 31. Beer gardens, swimming, and hiking along cold mountain trails are some of the things that get too hot.

The top 5 list includes not only coastal resorts but also mountains and lakes.

The beach of Yurikehama, Yoronjima Island

There is a Yurikehama beach on the east coast of Kagoshima Prefecture. Just 1 hour before deep tides the clear white sandy beach emerges an hour after low tides.

You might find the star-shaped grain “Hoshisuna” if you keep any sand in your hands. You will find peace when you collect the number of grains that match your age.

2. Okinawa Prefecture

Ishigaki Island, Kabira Bay

Kabira Bay is very famous for the lovely scenery. It lies in the northwest part of the island, about a 40-minute drive from the town of Ishigaki.

3 Michelin stars have won the beautiful nature and beautiful landscapes. The pure white sand and water make the ocean floor translucent. Take a cruise ride with a glass floor and enjoy colorful coral reefs and tropical birds. This tour of tourists is really successful.

3. Yamaguchi Prefecture


This island is situated in Yamaguchi prefecture in Shimonoseki, where there are just 900 inhabitants. Tourists from across Shikoku and Kansai regions are attracted by the white sandy beaches and lush emerald seas.

Opening in November 2000, the Tsunoshima Ohashi (bridge) takes 1780 meters. Tolls are open, of course!

4. Hokkaido

The Orofure Pass Observatory is situated at an altitude of 930 meters in the town of Karuru, Noboribetsu. You can see Lake Toya and Mt. Yotei. The sight is majestic. The sea of clouds on the Noboribetsu side and Sobetsu side can be seen from the observatory.

They look totally unlike one another. It is advised that you go from mid-May to October to see the sea of waters from spring until autumn. You will see the lovely morning sunrise and bright stars in the night if you’re lucky.

5. Aomori Prefecture

Shirakami is a huge territory covering the whole of Aomori Prefecture and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Shirakami is also the name of the city.

At the foot of the Shirakami Mountains, there is an area called Juanico. There are natural lakes on the seaside of Japan surrounded by beech trees. The woods have a calming impact and are approved as a basis for forest therapy. There is a cobalt blue pond in Junico and it has to be seen. From mid-June to the end of the summer you will enjoy the vivid green leaves.


Spring and fall are Japan’s top tourism seasons, which ensures that many tourist sites have fewer crowds in summer. The rates for hotels and costs for transport are now less expensive. June to September are the hottest months. Beat the heat with a light, comfortable, loose robe, a hat and shades, and a lot of water to drink. The sale of water, drinks, and sodas is normally never far away.
