Spending the summer in Japan means that you can rub shoulders with the locals in an energetic festival, or get away from the crowd and go hiking in cool, picturesque landscapes. You can indulge in soul food, and just relax in a hammock within view of Mt. Fuji or sip on a mug of icy, frothy beer in a private hot spring overlooking the festivities. No matter what you choose to do, summer in Japan will always be memorable.
