Japanese summer date,
how to make it in this COVID-19 situation?
”Natsu-matsuri (夏祭り)"=Summer traditional festival?
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 situation,
basically all "Natsu-matsuri (夏祭り)" is canceled.
Usually, Japanese girls are looking forward to it because it is a great opportunity to wear "Yukata (ゆかた)"=Summer Relaxed Kimono.
Japanese girls really like "Yukata (ゆかた)" Date.
You wanna date "Yukata (ゆかた)" girl too, don't you?
So… here is an alternative "Natsu-matsuri (夏祭り)" plan
If you can meet her in person,
just wear "Yukata (ゆかた)" together, and take a walk in a park.
Buy shaved ice or some nice food at a convenience store!
Even if it's the online date,
wear "Yukata (ゆかた)" together, and have a video chat is so much fun!
Going to the beach?
This is also difficult in the COVID-19 situation.
Wearing swim-wear at home is kinda embarrassing.
If you guys are already a serious couple and have the physical relationship it would be kinda fun.
Otherwise, girls don't wanna wear swim-wear at home together.
If you suggest it, sounds creepy.
So, the alternative plan is…,
Searching the best beach on the Internet together
and dream about the future plan together!
Regardless of meeting in person or online,
compete who is the one finding the best beach!
"Hanabi Festival (花火まつり)" = Fireworks festival?
Japanese summer date must be "Hanabi Festival (花火まつり)"！
Of course, it is canceled basically due to the COVID-19 situation.
It is also, "Yukata (ゆかた)" chance usually,
so, Japanese girls feel so sad because of no "Hanabi Festival" this summer.
So, giving her the chance to wearing it
by suggesting the "Yukata (ゆかた)" plan is great to do.
We cannot enjoy the big "Hanabi Festival (花火まつり)" this summer,
but, you can buy tiny ones at the convenience store.
Even if you guys cannot in person,
prepare the tiny Hanabi each, wear Yukata together,
and go to a small park in each neighborhood.
Playing tiny Hanabi together wearing Yukata via video chat!
Beer Garden date is also typical in Japanese summer.
But, in the COVID-19 situation, it is not favorable too.
So, an alternative plan is…,
Video chat at each balcony,
or in a small park in each neighborhood.
Buy beer and food which seem like "Beer garden food"
and start an outdoor video chat.
Introducing food you bought each other, reporting the taste.
So, maybe, you should buy something interesting or funny.
Outdoor in the Summer night, so,
don't forget MOSQUITO-REPELLENT anyway.
If it's not COVID-19 situation,
you can enjoy more and more "Summer" dates such as :
- Going to a water park (pool)
- Going to a river in a mountain
- Summer limited cruising
- Going to watching the stars
- Going to a special shaving ice store
- Going to a Sunflower park etc, etc...
Wish we make it next summer!
And these inconvenient summer dates will be a lovely memory
in the future in a sense, I believe.
Stay home as much as you can for someone weak,
and stay safe everyone!
