One thing I like in Japan is that there are about at least a holiday each month, plus week-long breaks during summer and winter. This is, of course, to encourage people here to take some rest once in a while as working long hours during weekdays is the norm.

Last Aug 2 (my summer vacation), we went to Kugenuma Beach , located along the shores of the Shonan Coast (said to be the home of surfing in Japan). Kugenuma Kaigan is being labeled as the birthplace of Japanese beach volleyball (in fact there was an ongoing tournament during that week).

I have to say, beaches in the Philippines are more beautiful than in Japan. I guess what makes Japan's beaches exciting are the Japanese ladies in bikinis :D, and surfing. Haven't tried to surf yet, only bodyboarding. :)

Above picture was taken by Kiks, when he borrowed my cam (most pics he took were those of ladies in bikinis :D). Twas really a hot, hot summer, though perfect for sunbathers like the guy featured. His group had not rented a parasol, and the guy was even lying face down on the sand, without a mat. Well, I guess the Japanese do like to have darker complexion as exemplified by the ganguro girls.
