10 great reasons to visit Japan in the summer

Get beneath the surface - The IJT Blog

Kamikochi in summertime Kamikochi in summertime

Spring is sprung, the snow has melted, the blossom is on the trees, and the Japanese are out in full force to celebrate the end of a long old winter. Yes, everybody loves a bit of spring.

But I’m sick of hearing about spring already. I already know about all the great reasons to travel to Japan in the spring. What about summer?!

Perhaps it’s the sweltering heat, or the humidity so thick you could spread it on toast – or perhaps it’s just that everyone goes so ga-ga for spring that they forget there was ever any other season. For whatever reason, summer in Japan tends to get a bit of a bad rap, and it’s totally undeserved.

Fiona Ntaringwa and Balbine Mutoni completed the top-5 at the pageant, which seemed to be the best organized and attended so far.

Darlène Gasana was crowned Miss Heritage while Sabrina Ihozo Kalisa became Miss Photogenic and Joannah Bagwire Miss Congeniality.

Catalina Island, California

Marina Chetner

I’m sprawled on a deck chair on the Relaxation Deck of the Island Spa Catalina. Blissed out after a hot stone spa treatment, I’m sipping champagne and taking in a million-dollar ocean view — I don’t want to move. It’s about four in the afternoon, and being winter, the sun will set within the hour. I call my husband and coax him to laze about with me (he’s in the hotel), before reflecting on the day we’ve had.

It began with a helicopter flight from Long Beach to Catalina Island – a 15-minute trip over the Pacific Ocean, which at this time of year is experiencing a mighty whale migration. (Our pilot spotted one, although it didn’t want to wave its tail at us.)  After touch-down, we woke up over coffee at Pavilion Hotel while absorbing its oceanfront view — an instant way to de-stress. The morning was brisk but…
