Hi guys, thank you for reading our blog and thank you for all your support always.
In a blink of an eye, the first solar term of Autumn [立秋Risshu] has came on 7th August. According to the traditional calendar, it is the period when the signs of autumn gradually begin to rise. However, in reality, it is still very hot in Japan and the Japan Meteorological Agency announced a heat stroke alert everyday.
What would you do in a hot season ? In August, there will be [Mountain Day] on 11st August as one of Japan’s public holidays. Although it is very hot, there are many people who enjoy hiking or climbing activities. One of the mountains I recommend to climb is Mount Fuji. I could not go to climb Mount Fuji this year but I miss Mount Fuji so much. Hope all of you come to Japan during July to September, enjoy the stunning nature and atmosphere from the top of Mount Fuji.
