[Easy English Blog] The beach in spring

DSC07339

I love going to the beach in spring in Japan. Even on beautiful sunny days, it is empty! I feel like I have my own private beach. Why are there no other people here? Well, it is not yet “beach season” in Japan. Most people here wait until July, after the rainy season, to go to the beach. During that time, the beaches are packed (crowded) with people enjoying the sun and the sea. There are usually stalls (outdoor shops) selling ice cream, drinks and flavoured shaved ice.

The beach season does not last long. It usually ends around mid to late August. This is when jellyfish start to show up on the shore…

But until the season starts, I will make the most of (take advantage of) the peace and quiet, and enjoy running and walking on my own private beach!
