The last few weeks on Twitter have seen some major engagement (and milestones) for The Real Japan.

It’s not only thanks to an ever growing number of you joining my community of like-minded Japan travellers, but just how active you are. Which is great to see!

Regular followers will know that Twitter is one of my biggest (and busiest) social media channels. I post multiple times daily, 365 days a year. (You can go and check if you like.)

 

Recent Twitter Highlights On The Real Japan

Top Media Tweet

A nice place to start. My big milestone recently was reaching 7,000 followers on Twitter. As I said in my post at the time The Real Japan simply would NOT exist without YOU. Your engagement and support is the reason I do this.

Top Festival Tweet

Every season is festival (matsuri) season somewhere in Japan. But summer rules supreme as the #1 season for all kinds of matsuri across the country. So an upturn in the number of tweets about them is to be expected as the heat begins to rise.

This tweet is about the ten thousand lanterns at the Akita Kanto Matsuri. It featured two contrasting day and night photos of the huge lantern trees carried through the streets of this Tohoku region city in northern Japan.

Easy to see why it got repeatedly retweeted as the days passed.

Top Tweet – McDonald’s Japan Gudetama Dessert

Although The Real Japan is primarily a travel and lifestyle community, I know that anything odd or cute is likely to appeal to many of my followers.

So, you will find me posting things like this from time to time. ;-)  It’s spot as my Top Tweet last month is probably due to the fact that Gudetama is both odd and cute!

Top Mention – West Coast to Far East

Our Top Mention was in this tweet from @TakayamaExpat. He too was celebrating reaching a Twitter following goal.

The West Coast to Far East blog documents the journey of one family’s relocation from Hollywood, California to the Japanese countryside.
