Los Angeles has been a beautiful season with bright sunshine and various flowers blooming all over the city.
California poppy, a symbol of wildflowers, unfortunately has few flowers this year, and it's far from the scenery that people were excited to say that it was a once-in-a-century super blooming in 2017 and 2019, but along the freeway. Rape blossoms and poppies compete for beauty and entertain us,

In California as a whole, 23.2 million COVID 19 vaccines have already been vaccinated, of which 8.55 million have been vaccinated as many times as needed, which is 21.6% of the population.
One in five Californians will be vaccinated at a high speed, and I think we can see the strength of the United States. Regulations such as California, Los Angeles, and Los Angeles International Airport have also clearly changed post-immigration regulations for vaccinated and non-vaccinated people.
Japanese customers also hope that the days when they can travel freely after vaccination will come one step further.


Eating and drinking in restaurants is restricted in various places including Los Angeles, but it has resumed and the city is beginning to regain its vitality. The reopening of the theme parks that everyone has been waiting for has begun in sequence.

Sports such as baseball will also be held with an increasing number of spectators.


Airmail from Japan is gradually returning to normal.
JAL flights from Japan to Los Angeles are currently confirmed once a day.
Haneda JAL16 Wed / Fri / Narita JAL6 February / Tue / Thu / Do Kansai International Airport flights depart on Saturday only for flights returning to Japan.

If you are returning to the Kansai area, we recommend that you choose a flight departing on Saturday.

Vaccination is progressing rapidly throughout the United States. As of April 14, 2021, the total number of inoculations was 190 million, accounting for 22.9% of the total population.
I have finished vaccination, but I think it is better to keep the COVID-19 vaccination card that I get after the second vaccination, as it may be useful in the future. People who are fully vaccinated with an FDA-approved vaccine can travel safely in the United States. CDC has also announced.
However, of course, you still need preventive measures such as wearing a mask, social distance, and hand sanitizer. "Complete vaccination" is said to be two weeks after the second vaccination.
If you lose your card, it seems that you can issue it because both the vaccinated pharmacy or business and the state have recorded the vaccination.

Those who are interested in national parks throughout the United States. Those who didn't care about this too!

We had a one night camp at Zion on April 12th.

Camping is a trend in the United States as well as in Japan.
However, in the United States, there are countless places where you can camp, not just campsites, and with the exception of some popular campsites, there is almost no congestion, and you can enjoy nature in an environment where there are no people around.
Especially in the area of the Grand Circle, where we provide tourist information on a daily basis, there are countless camping spots, making it a paradise for camping enthusiasts.

This time, I stayed overnight with the company staff at a campsite just outside the east exit of Zion National Park, and on the second day I hiked to the observation point.
The area around the campsite is close to 2000 meters above sea level, and although it is cheerful with short sleeves during the day, the temperature drops suddenly at sunset, and at night it drops to about 3 ° C, so I was warmed up by a bonfire until just before going to bed.
The large campsite was quiet with only a few tents visible.

The distance from Las Vegas to Zion National Park is less than 3 hours by car, so even if you leave in the afternoon, you can fully enjoy camping there.
We arrived in the evening and set up a tent leisurely while drinking beer to prepare for the bonfire and dinner.
The main meal is ribeye steak grilled on a bonfire!
It was one of the best 5 steaks I've ever had.

When the area gets dark, the sky is full of stars overhead. It was a new moon and it was sunny, so I was impressed.
I will post a photo of the camp.

The View Hotel, a popular hotel in Monument Valley, opened on April 9th. It will be the first opening in a year since it closed due to the influence of the corona. Native Americans, the Navajos, have closed the park so they can't enter Monument Valley, but they can now enjoy the spectacular views from the hotel.

On Saturday, April 10th, the second day of the tour will begin at Page near Lake Powell.
Since Antelope Canyon is still closed, sightseeing in the Grand Canyon will be the main focus on this day.

Enter from the east exit of the newly opened Grand Canyon National Park and go sightseeing from the Desert View Point.
I'm really grateful for the reopening of the east exit because I've been bypassing the same move for the past year via Flagstaff.

I will post a photo of yesterday's dessert view from my guide.

On Friday, April 9th, we held a one-night, two-day Grand Circle tour today.

Today on the first day, I visited Bryce Canyon National Park and Horseshoe Bend, and the last was watching the sunset at Lake Powell.
Today's temperature in Bryce Canyon, 2400 meters above sea level, is 15 degrees Celsius and sunny. It was the best weather without any cold weather. The temperature around Lake Powell, where Horseshoe Bend is located, is 24 ° C, which is also sunny. In the evening, enjoy the cool and comfortable air and watch the slowly falling sun.

The customer was a family of five who came from San Diego for sightseeing during the spring break.
I have received a photo of today's sightseeing spot from my guide, so I will post it.

The East Gate of the Grand Canyon National Park South Rim, a World Natural Heritage Site in Arizona, has reopened on Thursday, April 8th, local time. The request was closed on April 1st last year, but it has finally opened. We, Aqua Travel staff, visited the popular Desert View Observatory near the East Gate, which was closed as well as the East Gate on the first day of opening. The Desert View Observatory was full of domestic customers even though it was the first day. There are only two gates in the Grand Canyon National Park South Rim, the South Gate and the East Gate, and only the South Gate is open, which was inconvenient for sightseeing, but this seems to alleviate traffic congestion. After all, it was good that the Desert View Observatory near the East Gate opened. From this observatory, you can see the meandering part of the Colorado River and enjoy the depth of the canyon. And it is a wonderful place to watch the sunset. Sightseeing in the Grand Canyon National Park is returning to normal.

A YouTube video shows the reopening of the East Gate and Desert View Observatory in the Grand Canyon National Park South Rim.
