Golden Week in Japan is usually from April 29 to May 5 and most locals take advantage of the streak of holidays turning this into one of the busiest travel seasons in Japan. If you're visiting Japan, beware the low availability of hotel rooms and expect crowds and slow traffic.
As a local, it's hard not use this time to travel and enjoy the summer!
We've been lucky that it hasn't gotten crazy hot and humid here - yet - but it's coming!
Candy-wise we've seen lots of interesting limited edition Pocky, so far our favorites are the Brazilian Orange and the Crystal Salty. We're hoping to here what *you* like. Let us know!
