Japan Bucket List!2018.05.23


Japan Bucket List!

Hello!
英会話イーオン日立校カウンセラーのNobukoです。
当校のブログをご覧下さり、ありがとうございます!
今日はSarah先生が担当です♪
日本で旅行したい所が
まだまだたくさんあるみたいですよ!

================

Dear Readers,
 
I hope you’re well! It’s been a very nice week.
Unfortunately, my hayfever is back
and I have a very itchy nose!
I’m allergic to grass and my hayfever usually
returns every year around June.

 
Today I’ll be writing about my Japan bucket list,
meaning the things I’d like to do while in Japan.


I’ve lived in Japan for about a year
and a half in total, but still my travelling
has been quite limited. I’m familiar with Tokyo
and surrounding areas like Yokohama and Saitama.
I’ve been to some nice places around Tokyo
like Kamakura, Kawagoe and Mt Takao.
I’ve also travelled around the Kansai region
to places like Kyoto, Osaka, Nara and Himeji.
But there are still so many places I want to visit!

 
My top priority is Kyushu.
I’ve never been further South than
Kansai in Japan, and Kyushu looks so lush
and beautiful. I heard from our manager
that the food is great too! I’d like to go to Fukuoka
and to some more quiet places too.
Recently I’ve been craving somewhere
peaceful and green. I don’t really know much
about Kyushu, but I know that it appeals to me
more than Hokkaido! Somebody once told me
that the architecture in Hokkaido is a bit more
European in style, and I know that
the weather is much cooler. In this respect,
it seems like Hokkaido would be more like the UK
or Northern Europe! And while I’m sure it’s lovely,
I’d be more interested to go somewhere
strikingly different to what I’m used to rather than
somewhere more similar.

 
Aside from Kyushu, I’d like to visit Hiroshima
and Miyajima – these are also high on my bucket list!
Hiroshima has a lot of historical significance
and the floating shrine in Miyajima looks
really stunning in pictures.
I’d also like to meet the Miyajima deer
– I heard they’re not as friendly as the Nara deer
and my friend told me that they tried to eat her bag
while she was there! It sounds like fun.
Again, I imagine these places to be very green
and lush in the Spring and Summer months.
I want relax hearing the soft sound of semi
in the trees, and watching the gentle ocean waves!

 
Last on my bucket list (for now,
although I may extend it!) is Shikoku.
I sometimes hear people say that
there’s not much in Shikoku, but that’s part
of its appeal for me – I want to go somewhere
with a lot of trees and not a lot of people.
I’ve also always wanted to do the Shikoku
88 temple pilgrimage! I love hiking and
I’m interested in Buddhism and temples,
so ever since learning about this pilgrimage
I’ve wanted to try it. I want to wear the funny hat, too.
Aside from the pilgrimage, I’d like to try some great
Kagawa udon.

If I go to Shikoku, I’ll be sure to also visit Naoshima.
This is a place that one of my friends told me about,
an island off the North of Shikoku.
I heard that it’s a small, peaceful island filled
with modern art installations. I can’t think of anything
more relaxing than a rural island with pretty beaches
packed full of modern art.
I’m sure I’d have a great time just wondering around
and eating ice cream!

 
Although Kansai and the Tokyo areas are great,
and I love them very much,
I think I’m sick of the crowds now!
That’s why my Japan bucket list is made up of
more peaceful, rural places.

 
Thank you for reading, and as always
if you have any advice about my travel plans
or recommendations please let me know!
I’d like to hear about your favourite places
in Japan for inspiration.

 
Have a great week!
 
Sarah
