With Japan stirring back to life after a few months of hunkering down to combat COVID-19, quite a few residents in Japan are getting ready to get their summer plans back on track. Domestic travel is starting to pick up, and major vacation destinations such as Fuji-Q Highland have already reopened. Tokyo Disneyland is scheduled to reopen on July 1, so just this week those in Japan will be able to get their fix of amusement and theme parks.
Those planning a quick getaway to destinations in Japan might also find that with international travel at a low, streets normally packed with tourists are almost empty in some cases. This unique opportunity is making some people plan ahead for a domestic summer vacation.

Universal Studios Japan has been open since mid-June to those who live in the Kansai region of Japan. If you don’t live in Kansai, you’ll need to wait for an update from the theme park to hear when they will allow residents from other areas of Japan to visit the theme park again. But with the park being just 12 min away from this apartment, it’s definitely a spot to keep in mind if you’re a fan of USJ!
The Dotonbori entertainment district near Shinsaibashi is a crowd favorite when visiting Osaka. The streets are filled with restaurants, street food, and other shops that make for an unforgettable experience. When in Osaka, trying the local takoyaki (fried dough-balls with octopus) is a must!
