As a foreigner living in Japan, there are often times when things are just, well, different from home. That’s one thing that makes life interesting here.
This article from the BBC news website describes and explains one such difference – about going to the beach only at the ‘right time’.
If you are Japanese, do you agree with the article?
If you are not, what happens in your country?
In the UK, we go to the beach all year round. In fact, recently it has become a tradition in my family to go to the beach on Christmas day…albeit wearing a bit more than a swim suit!
