A working holiday visa is a travel permit which allows travelers to undertake employment in the country issuing the visa for the purpose of supplementing their travel funds.
And in this year, Japan and Hong Kong have signed an agreement that allows youngsters to work during their travels. There have been about 800 people successfully getting the visa and I feel lucky to be one of them.
So, I started my journey in July. Before staying in Tokyo, I went to Hokkaido and Tohoku.
The northernmost tip of Japan, Wakkanai
Festival in Hachinohe
The festivals in Tohoku were very impressive. I visited 5 of them in August. The one I liked most is in Aomori. The lanterns were big and it required the participants used all ther energy to pull them.
The reason for being an applicant of the working holiday visa is that I wanna experience daily life in this country. There should be something that I can't try and see as a tourist.
I'm really glad that I can be one of the staff in Sakura Hotel Ikebukuro. My co-workers are so nice and have taught me a lot of things. Here I want to show my gratitude to them. This is actually the essence of the journey. I really enjoy my life in Japan now!
