Hi there ! Have you been enjoying your days in Tokyo? Is it too hot for you? Then day trip from Tokyo could make you feel better.
I took a day trip to Suwa, where I enjoyed watching the firework festival on the lake Suwa. It is about 2 hours from Tokyo by using express train.
The firework festival is one of the biggest ones in Japan, and many tourism companies offer package plans. Though the firework festival was from 19:00, I arrived there around 11:03, so that I could enjoy the city itself. Below is the photo of the station.
The city has various attractions, such as the Shinshu soba (the noodle from this region), Suwa castle, cycling along the lake, famous shrines, hot springs etc. This time, thanks to the firework festival, I also enjoyed watching various stalls selling junk foods.
It is much cooler than Tokyo, and it could be a bit cold for some people in the night time. So if you go there, I would advice you to have a jacket or scarf for precaution.
