Today is Marine Day in Japan! Marine Day, or Umi no Hi (海の日) in Japanese is a National Holiday that is celebrated on the third Monday in July. The holiday is also known as “Ocean Day” or “Sea Day” with the purpose of giving thanks to the sea and to consider the importance of the ocean to Japan as an island nation.

Some travellers prefer the path less travelled – whether that means experiencing deep and authentic culture, going out of the way to see one-of-a-kind natural sights or uncovering the regional spots yet to be discovered by others. If this sounds like you, then experiencing Rustic Japan in the Tohoku (north eastern) region of Japan might be your cup of tea.
