The long-awaited hot season of summer has arrived in Japan! Make the most of this beautiful season heading to the mountains and beaches to check out beautiful scenery.

Ashigara Pass in Shizuoka Prefecture where old castle ruins are located, is a great summer attraction near Camp Fuji. Here you can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the whole city of Gotemba at the backdrop of majestic Mt. Fuji and the Tanzawa Mountain Range.

Today’s Japanese phrase:
“Natsu ga kimashita!” = Summer has come!
("natsu" = summer, ".. ga kimashita" = .. has come) 
Stay safe and enjoy the beautiful season of summer in Japan!
