Pool Sea Mountain Nature

The Japanese school year begins in April with summer vacation(夏休み "natsu yasumi") at most Japanese public elementary and middle schools starts during July, after Marine Day on July 20 and usually lasts for around six weeks through the end of August. Thus, there are a number of vacation packages being released around this time for school children and for the family.

At the same time, the hot summer(真夏 "manatsu") hits Tokyo around this time of the year, with many people losing their appetite and some feel lethargic because of the hot and muggy heat. This is because our body is incapable of making adverse adjustments in temperature, when we enter an air-conditioned building or public transport after prolonged exposure to the sweltering summer heat.

To stay healthy through the summer, exercise and diet is the key. If you don't have a clue on what to do for summer vacation in Japan, beside complaining about the heat, you can take a look at the many summer vacation packages that are available.
