Sado, the largest island in Japan, is usually a quiet, peaceful island. But every year for the three-day Earth Celebration (EC) in August, the island transforms into a lively, international hub. Presented by world-renowned taiko drumming ensemble Kodo, EC is a music festival that brings performing art talents together from within and outside of Japan.
Japan is one of the leading countries in Asia for television shows and movies. Some fantastic dramas that have brought millions to tears, interestingly, were originally manga comics before they were made into animations and eventually live-action dramas.
Tokyo is a very diverse city with uncountable sightseeing destinations. Yet when it’s raining and cold outside, you might prefer something indoors.

Especially if you are in Shinjuku and Godzilla is waiting for you right by the building of the Toho cinemas.
