There’s something special about Summer in Japan. This will be my 9th summer in Japan and I love it more each year. The sound of cicadas and the scent of burning incense will always bring back sweet memories. Summer is filled with lots of fun activities and a sense of excitement. Maybe it’s the Hanabi(Fireworks) festivals that I love so much. Or hanging out with friends at beer gardens. There is just so much to love about summer!
If you are in Tokyo this summer, you might want to check out one of these firework festivals:

And have an ice cold beer at one of Tokyo’s top beer gardens.
