I will be accompanying my husband on his business trip to Fukishima late July 2018. Most days I will be completely on my own, including evenings where he will have dinners that I will likely be excluded from all but one or two nights. I have never been to this prefecture, and information about the area is limited. I am wondering if someone could suggest some things that are easy and fun to do for a gaijin woman to do alone. Also, while we are flying in and out of Tokyo, we have the option of arriving the weekend before and remaining the weekend after with maybe adding a vacation day or two to see something new.
The little I have read leaves me sort of lukewarm in my enthusiasm. I have been to Japan 6 times previously, including on March 11, 2011. Have traveled to Tokyo, and surrounds like Kamakura and Nikko, and we will be spending one day in Yokohama. Have also visited Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, Hiroshima, and have climbed Mt. Fuji. Most of my trips have been short stays and mostly a "Greatest Hits" best of tourist sites tour. But once, we did a home exchange and go to live like a local. ( Well actually, a local European expat).. I am sort of at a loss as to what to do with myself during the week, and where to visit for my extended weekends. WE are open to travel to any destination. We are the kind of people that sometimes fly from the US to Asia or Europe for a long weekend, so we are not put off by distance or money for something truly unusual or worthwhile. We are always hungry to go somewhere new, but also don't mind visiting old favorites. I have never been to any of the coastal resorts, small villages or an Onsen.
Does anyone have an ideas for me? Also, what is the weather like in this prefecture? I have been to Japan in July before, and it was mostly unbearably hot and humid or raining.
Thanks for your assistance, am looking forward to suggestions.
