The Things I Love

Everyone has things they love. I have my long list too: I love the sea because of the vastness of the waters and the sparkle on the waves when the sun shines on them…I love Mount Fuji because of its majestic height and the serene look of its unique peak…I love onsen hot springs because they relax me and because they’re usually nested where one can enjoy nature and the four seasons of Japan.

A Cool Kerama Blue Trip

Hello! This is Jonathan! As you might expect, a meteorologist who enjoys studying nature also likes being IN nature, and as summer is around the corner in Japan, that’s my cue to hit the beach. A beautiful beach is my favorite outdoor location, and if I’m on break, you might just find me at a beach in southwestern Japan away from the busyness of Tokyo.

Every Cloud has a Silver Lining Even in Rainy Season

Who likes the rainy season? If you say no, maybe you can make many friends here in Japan. I have never seen anyone who is reluctant to get wet more than us, Japanese people.
