The Land of the Rising sun has steadily grown in popularity among Filipinos as a top holiday destination, with many of them choosing to spend precious downtime in its many diverse cities. After all, the East Asian country has something for everyone: urbanites at heart will feel right at home roaming Osaka and Tokyo's streets, adventurers can admire the great outdoors in Niseko and Shikoku, culture junkies can get their fix in Nara and Kyoto, while foodies, well, can look to any restaurant, big or small, for their daily dose of Japanese fare of their liking!

It comes to no surprise then that even celebrities, socialites, and other personalities want to explore the neighboring country; there's just so much about it to discover and love. Want to know what they have been up to in Japan (and to maybe get inspiration from their travels for your own Japan trip)?

Look no further than this list showcasing how they are enjoying Japan this Holy Week break:



Regine Angeles


Like all moms documenting each and every precious "first" with their children, Regine is making sure she captures the best ones with baby boy Viktor Alesso. Check out this snaphot of the two in one of their first trips abroad. That furry onesie is too much for us to handle!




Someone is super excited for his first trip! ?????

Karylle and Yael Yuzon


Accompanied by her husband Yael, Karylle gives us a glimpe of Japan's famous Sakura festival with this POV-shot video. Look at how the flowers bloom! Wouldn't it be awesome if you could also just roll out a mat and spend a lazy afternoon at a cherry blossom park like this one with a good book and snacks?

Rochelle and Arthur's Japan experience is a great balance of urban and natural—just check out Rochelle's many photos detailing the many sights and sounds to see both inside and outsdie!
