A trip to the Land of the Rising Sun promises to experience Japan's unique culture and tradition. Here, the cherry trees bloom, heralding new beginnings, and smiling is part of the typical manners. A vacation is also recommended near the coast in the west. There, the Sea of Japan lies as part of the Pacific Ocean, bordering the East China Sea and the Sea of Okhotsk. Japan and Korea argue about the naming, as Korea prefers to call it the East Sea. The Sea of Japan was dominated by pirates for many years and was the main theater of the Japanese War between Japan and Russia in the early 20th century. It has warm temperatures of ewa 20 degrees in summer and reaches sub-zero temperatures in winter, so it is under a thick layer of ice. In autumn, strong winds form with high waves that break violently against the coast, sometimes several meters. The Sea of Japan offers a varied fishing. Here live crabs, squid and giant medusae.
