My Wordsmith Vantage Point

Konnichiwa Everyone,

 

I hope you’re having a marvelous day because today I’m debuting my new blog series: Dream Vacation. Traveling is one of my all-time favorite pastimes, especially international. It’s been six years since I’ve set foot on foreign soil and I do miss it so! And to quench that thirst for travel, I’ve created this series.

 

First stop: Japan! Japan banner

Japan is one of those places that I’ve only dreamed about. I’ve gotten to taste the food (sushi), been influenced by the culture (manga, kanji) and awestruck by its picturesque scenery (Mt. Fuji and Mt. Kōya) on paper. A little more than 10 years ago I was first introduced to Anime and the Japanese language, and I found it to be very intriguing.

If I ever save up enough money, I’d like to go to the following Japanese locations:

Tokyo because it’s the NYC of the East. Enough said.

Kyoto is renowned for its traditional art and thriving culture of refined cuisine, famous gardens, and marvelous temples and palaces.

Hiroshima for obvious reasons: its history. The shattering effect of America dropping an atomic bomb on the city in August 1945 has made this city world-famous.

Mount Fuji is Japan’s highest mountain and its snow-capped peak is visible from Tokyo on any clear day. Did I forget to mention the eight Oshino Kakkai hot springs that are close by?

Kyūshū in late March through April is the best time for the Cherry Blossom Festival.

Kyushu is widely known for its amazing cherry blossoms.
