Who here cannot wait to travel again?
The nation-wide state of emergency in Japan was lifted on May 25th. Japan is expected to gradually reopen borders from the end of June. This will start with countries in which COVID-19 has largely been contained (such as Australia, New Zealand, Vietnam and Thailand) and will continue to add countries to the list.
As the country begins to open up, many are eager to start looking into travel plans for later this year or next year. If you’re looking to travel, you may want to consider the seasons you’d like to visit Japan and what you’d want to see. For example, this year, Fuji Shibazakura Festival (between mid-April to late-May) was cancelled due to COVID-19, but you still have a chance to see it next year!
Each year, Fuji Shibazakura Festival (富士芝桜まつり), located about 3 km south of Lake Motosuko in the Fuji Five Lakes area, displays the breathtaking scenery of 800,000 pink moss against the backdrop of Mt Fuji. It is worth seeing if you’re planning to visit Japan in the Spring. ?
