Golden week✨

It’s the final day today of this year’s ‘Golden Week’ in Japan. Hope people in Japan are having a great time.

In case you might never have heard of ‘Golden Week’… There are quite a few public holidays between the end of April and the beginning of May (which is now) in Japan and it gives people a great opportunity to have a holiday. That’s why the week around this time of the year is called ‘Golden Week’ in Japan.

As you might imagine, popular destinations are absolutely utterly busy. Trains and flights are heavily booked during ‘Golden Week’. It’s not ideal but for some people, it is their only option to have a holiday without distracting their work life.
