This year, the Golden Week starts from April 28 to May 6, excluding May 1 and 2. It is difficult to find rooms in hotels in popular places.
This year, we reserved a room in XIV Hatsushima on May 4 and 5. It is a pity the sea is still too cold to dive in.
Before going to Hatsushima, I need to work.
On April 9, I go to Tokyo, and from 13th to 15th, I will be in China. On the 16th, I go to Kyoto. I have a lot of things to be done before the golden week.
I will be going to Osaka and Hiroshima during Golden week so see the infamous Miyajima shrine.
Why is it called Golden Week when the 1st and 2nd of May are not holidays? It’s more of a long weekend. 3rd – 6th. Why is it called Golden Week? Doesn’t sound golden at all.
ben, thanks for coming to my blog. Sorry I did not respond soon because I was in China.
Your site is so informative and fun!
This year, normally, people would take breaks on May 1 and 2, too, to make it continuous.
However, classes do not stop, so I will attend school on those two days.
Anyway, have fun in the two cities.
