Best Place to See Cherry Blossom in Japan? Consider Obara, Aichi!

        Have you felt absolutely torn apart when you are trying to decide the best timing to visit Japan?
Spring (Late March- Early April) for Sakura or Autumn (Early November-  Early December) for fall foliage? Japan is famous for both sceneries and you can’t seem to decide... I totally understand. I’ve been there too in that exact situation.

A Visit to the Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium: Is it Worth it?

      Our last attraction of the trip was the Nagoya Port Public Aquarium. After a brief stroll at the port, we headed straight into the North building of the aquarium, greeted by, our first sight, the bottlenose dolphins, killer whales, and Beluga whales! We ran for the dolphins show first because the show was about to start. It was spectacular, so please take note of the show time so that you won’t miss it! There are 3 scheduled dolphin shows per day at the largest main pool in all of Japan, with stands seating approximately 3,000 people.

Japan Experience: Strolling Inuyama, Aichi Dressing in Kimono

      Kimono is the traditional garment of Japan and it can be literally translated as a “thing to wear” (ki means “wear” and mono means ”thing”). The earliest Kimono were heavily influenced by Hanfu, which is the traditional Chinese clothing before the Qing dynasty. After a fantastic visit to the Inuyama castle, we had a chance to stroll the quaint old town of Inuyama in kimono!
