I went to Shonan's Enoshima and Enosui aquarium. Although it is not located in Tokyo, it is one of the most popular places for people from Tokyo to spend their Summer. By train, it is just one and a half hour trip!
7minuits from Ikebukuro station, the nearest station to the hotel, by taking subway (Not including witing time, the same goes for other destinations bellow ) Basically, it is a covered ball park, however, many mucsical conserts are held as well
Every spring, people in Japan flock to strawberry gardens for a chance to pick ripe strawberries (called 'ichigo' in Japanese) with their own hands. Visitors can eat lots of berries on the spot, or bring some home as a tasty souvenir.
Japan is home to a large number of unique strawberry varieties, some of the most popular of which being Tochiotome, Akihime, and Toyonoka, just to name a few.
Some varieties are considered regional specialties: Fusanoka from Chiba, Beni Hoppe from Shizuoka, Yayoihime from Gunma, and Asuka Ruby from Nara, are all strawberry representatives of their respective regions. Strawberry picking is a very popular weekend activity among Japanese people, typically from January until early May.
When Can Japanese Strawberries be Picked?
The best time for picking depends on the region and also the cultivation style.
・Greenhouse Cultivation: Many strawberry growers are open for business from January through Golden Week, the first week of May. However, some indoor gardens may allow picking as early as December. Colder regions tend to be open later in the season. For example, Nagano offers strawberry picking well into the end of June. In Kanagawa and Chiba, there are many places that are open during Golden Week.
・Open-field Cultivation: In rural areas with heavy snowfall, there are many farms with field-grown strawberries. Hokkaido in particular is an especially popular spot for outdoor strawberry picking, with a relatively short season that typically lasts from late June until late July.
El año pasado aprovechando mi visita a la ciudad de Kanazawa estuve en la playa de Chirihama en la prefectura de Ishikawa en Japón.
Tiene la peculiaridad de que es la única playa en el país donde está permitido circular..., en coche!
Para los que disfruten conduciendo en esta playa pueden circular 8 kilometros por la arena al lado del mar, aunque digamos que es algo bastante simple la verdad es que es una experiencia única y muy chula.
Los fines de semana y festivos dependiendo a que horas he oído decir que puede haber muchos coches, lo recomendable sería ir entre semana, pronto por la mañana o a útima hora de la tarde que es cuando fuí yo, no había prácticamente nadie y además puedes ver la puesta de sol sobre el mar ya que la playa está situada mirando al oeste.
