The number of the international visitors to Japan made the record high over 2,000 by the end of this October, and amazingly supposed to have reached 21,988,400 by the end of this November, according to the official report of JNTO(http://www.jnto.go.jp/) . The total number of the year might be even over 22,000,000 by the end of this year. The number of this year has increased by 22.4% compared to that of last year.
We have four distinct seasons in Japan. Each season has its own attraction. I highly recomend you to visit Japan in Autumn as well as spring. The weather is not too hot nor cold. You can enjoy comfortable temperatures. You can have delicious food since autumn is harvest season.
Fireworks are one of the highlighted popular events of joy for Japanese people in summer for hundreds of years. This year about 1,000 firworks displays are being held all over Japan especially in July and August. (http://hanabi.walkerplus.com/)
The Lunar New Year, which is widely celebrated in eastern Asian countries falls on Jan.31st this year 2014. In many areas especially those related to Chinese or other asian contries or culturesm suhc as China Town in Yokohama and others find lively festivals and events. In some areas such events last for acouple days, for instance, in Yokohama, the spring festival is being held Jan.31-Feb. 14.(http://www.chinatown.or.jp/agenda/event/5851)
Japan Tourism Agency created a new logo of “JAPAN TAX-FREE SHOP” and used for tax free services by some sstores or huge department stores in Tokyo and Osaka and others on Jan.31.
In some department stores started serviec special “happy gift packs for the new year” for limited term of the Lunar New Year’s holidays targetting mainly tourists and customers from Asian contries.
One month has passed since this year 2014, a “year of a horse” started. I feel a better air is all around in Japan to enhance international friendhships after the first month of this shiny year. We do hope such postive situations go on ,
An influential seafood store in the entrance area

The Japanese government announced to set up new policies of abolishing requirements of visas to tourists from Thailand and Malaysia, and of issuing multi-time visas for tourists from Vietnam and Philippines. The tourists from the first two countries can currently receive multi-time visas, while those from the latter two can currently receive only one-time visas. Tokyo really expects to boost the number of such tourists from those ASEAN countries to Japan with the new relaxation policies.

Hibiki members are volunteers authorized by the Meiji Shrine. We offer a tea ceremony to people from overseas as a part of the international cultural exchange program.
Thanks to the Meiji Shrine and the International Nodate Association, the tea ceremony is held in a traditional Japanese house which is not usually open to the public. The Meiji Emperor partly designed the Japanese garden and built the house for the Empress.
During the ceremony, a tea host or hostess is accompanied by an English translator and serves a cup of powdered green tea with Japanese confectionary. The ceremony takes about 60 minutes. It costs 1,000 Yen per person. (including tea, confectionary, English translation service by professional interpreter–guides, and admission to Gyoen Japanese Garden). Thousands of irises start flowering.
The tea ceremony sessions start at 10:30 am and 2:00 pm, so please come to Harajuku gate by 10:00 am or 1:30pm . We will take you to the teahouse (about 8 minutes’ walk). Upon request we also offer a free-guided tour to the main shrine before (or after) the ceremony.
We are looking forward to seeing you.

Japanese goverment decided on June 6 that they would evaluate the place of parody in Japanese copyright law.
As Japanese law currently stands, no special provisions are made for parody works. A strict reading of the law would deem parody as a violation of copyright owners’ “right to maintain integrity,” making parody potentially illegal without the prior consent of copyright owners.
