The beaches of Japan, the country of the rising sun, distinguished by their originality and approach, spread over a nation that combines the futurism of the capital, Tokyo, in rural and traditional aspect of culture and many of the towns. With more than 6,800 small islands, some of the beaches are truly spectacular, and from there we went to see the beauty and ancient traditions of the country.
The swimming season in Japan begins with the blessing of a priest, who is in charge of declaring that the waters are safe for people to swim. This ceremony is normally completed by the first days of June, although you may find some people swimming outside these dates.
