2. Tokyo, Japan
June in Tokyo is all about “ajisai” or hydrangeas. It is a beautiful flowering plant that is abundant to eastern Asian countries like Japan. Some of the major festivals during rainy season in Tokyo are based around it, like the Bunko Ajisai Festival.
You can also witness other beautiful natural phenomenons in Tokyo during the month of June, such as the fireflies. This experience can be further enhanced by visiting Tokyo’s traditional firefly festival.
If you are into toys, the International Tokyo Toy Show is also scheduled for June. The event features activities and workshops not just for your kids but for kids at heart too.
3. Auckland, New Zealand
June is the start of winter in New Zealand. The weather may be cold but it’s the best time to witness a winter wonderland (mostly in the South Island) whilst having fun and experiencing great food and festivals.
One good festival to experience in Aukland is the GABS Beer, Cider & Food Fest which celebrates the diversity and creativity of craft beer. But if you’re looking for something a little healthier, you can also get a taste of New Zealand’s fresh bounteous harvest at the Parnell Market.
Walk around the city and be stunned by the Viaduct Harbour views. Full of super yachts and lined with bars and cafes through to Sky tower, this is a spot not to be missed. You can also visit the Auckland Domain, the city’s oldest park which is based around an extinct volcano.
Kids can have fun at numerous interactive museums in Auckland, such as the New Zealand Maritime Museum, or Museum of Transport and Technology. This museum offers a combination of heritage trains, trams and planes with a hands-on technology experience.
If you are done touring around the city of Aukland, you can head south to try some outdoor activities or spend some time at the beach.
