We are now almost half-way through the year already.



Time flies. We’re now almost half-way through the year already. June is the 6th month of the year. The month of June was named after the Roman goddess name Juno, the goddess of marriage. During the ancient time, the best time to get married was in June because the marriage would be protected by Juno. However, things changed.
People across the globe do other special things and celebrate different occasions in June. How about in Japan? What do Japanese people do in June? How’s June like in Japan?
