Japan might have earned the title of being a nation of eccentricities, but it is also known as the land of awesome: from the best toilets and game shows to cuddle cafes. Here are five more updates from its travel sector and you'll find that most of them are pretty sweet and normal.

Hot tub theme park. Are they serious? Yes. People will get to be on towels and robes all day as park attractions are all in hot tubs. You name it - rollercoasters, busses, carousel, and sky rides. The Spamusement Park Project in Beppu City would become a reality if they reached 1 million views. As of writing, they have gained 2.9million loves from people all over the globe. Beppu would like to be "spa city of the world." Will we see it happen?

Cherry Blossoms. Blush pink sakura flowers will start to bud all over Japan, and people can get to see it as early as February. However, most cherry blossoms would be in full bloom by April. Take a trip and view the flowers yourselves and have a picnic with your family underneath the trees. Forecast shows that the budding will start south with Okinawa on mid-February and go to the north with Sapporo.

"Your Name" (Kimi no Na Wa) Themed Trip. You have 26 days left to fill out the form and get a chance to win a trip to Tokyo and Gifu. To the fans of the anime, this is your chance live the sites depicted in the movie. Would you like to visit the shrine during the search for Mitsuha or to the shop where Tsukasa and Okudera-senpai ate gohei mocha? Take a chance on the application. You might find yourself living in the movie.

Millennials snowboards for free. IPlayFukushima lets young foreign ones from ages 19 to 24 ski for free for just one day. If you're out of the age range, you get to pay 2,000 Yen or roughly $17 to enter. So, head to Fukushima's Aizu ski region and present your passport or visa to the ticket staff to any of the 22 areas of Aizu.

Be careful travel firms. Travel companies who push their workers to do overtime be warned! It is illegal to have employees work beyond their hours. A man committed suicide years ago because of stress from working too much time as advised by their managers. Japan is now going after travel agencies who practice this illegal activity.
