Leave Nothing But Footprints: Japanese Nature Walks


Travelers plan their trips with full schedules, trying to squeeze as many activities as possible into each day. However, in our already hectic lives, we occasionally forget to slow down, take a deep breath, and take in our surroundings. This is what Japan is all about. Only when we stop and take the time to observe do we notice nature's beauty. From majestic landscapes to rustic townscapes, Japan is the ideal place to pause and smell the flowers.

Shosenkyo Gorge

Shosenkyo Gorge

If you want to take "the scenic route" to the next level, stop and admire the views of Shosenkyo Gorge. The gorge is located in Yamanashi Prefecture and has a hiking trail that leads through vibrant plants and rock formations that resemble Mt. Fuji and other figures. Speaking of the mountain, the ropeway provides a spectacular view of Mt. Fuji and the Southern Japan Alps.

Kofu Station is a 90-minute ride from Shinjuku Station. The remaining 40-minute bus ride from Kofu Station completes the journey.

Lake Ashinoko

Lake Ashinoko

Lake Ashinoko in Kanagawa Prefecture is a must-see walking destination. Mt. Fuji towers above the surrounding landscape, and its reflection fills the caldera lake. Together with the Hakone Shrine, the scenery is breathtaking. Few sights in the world are more breathtaking. You can also take a ride on one of Hakone Sightseeing Boats' pirate ships or hire a swan paddle boat.

The Romancecar train from Shinjuku Station to Hakone-Yumoto Station connects Tokyo to Lake Ashinoko. From there, take the 35-minute bus ride to Motohakone-ko Station.


This small town in Saitama Prefecture is a hidden gem that deserves to be discovered. Its rich history is nestled among the mountains and trees. A boat ride down the Arakawa River and through the Nagatoro Gorge can soothe any soul, but more intense river rafting rides are available for those seeking a thrill. Nagatoro is a town designed for outdoor activities that offers something for everyone!

Nagatoro can be reached by car via the Kan-Etsu Expressway or by train via the Chichibu Railway to Nagatoro station, both taking approximately an hour and a half.

Mt. Horaiji

Mt. Horaiji

If you're in the mood for introspection, look for the towering Mt. Horaiji. It envelops a forest and allows you to experience colors that appear to have been handpicked by a landscape artist. This mountain, located in Aichi Prefecture, combines nature and spirituality, making it ideal for an introspective walk rich in history and Japanese religion. Only a majestic mountain can remind us that life is greater than our actions and that the natural world is unparalleled in beauty. Horaiji Temple, located on the mountain, was built in 703 and is thought to have curative properties.

To get to Mt. Horaiji, take a local bus from Hon-Nagashino Station or a shinkansen from Nagoya Station to Toyohashi Station, then transfer to the JR Iida Line to Hon-Nagashino Satation.

Nunobiki Falls

Nunobiki Falls

Follow a winding path behind Shin-Kobe Station, passing a few houses and a local or two, until you reach Nunobiki Falls. One of Japan's most famous waterfalls, the view from the top is worth the hike.  It is a tranquil location with a herb garden and a few English informational signs. You can take the Kobe Nunobiki Ropeway to the top of the waterfall for a spectacular view of the surrounding flora.  The area is far from Japan's usual hustle and bustle, and it offers a unique opportunity to experience harmony with nature.

To get here from Osaka, take the Tokaido-Sanyo Shinkansen and arrive at Shin-Kobe Station in just 12 minutes. The waterfalls are about a 20-minute hike from there.

While vacations spent rushing through urban jungles are enjoyable, sometimes simply stopping and taking in the scenery is enough to make the moment. Japan is endowed with a plethora of natural wonders for those who take the time to look — with some planning, a knack for exploration, and a sense of adventure, anyone can create unforgettable memories and take stunning photographs. To appreciate nature, one must seek it out, and there is always something new to discover in Japan.

InLife campaigns for an Un-sandwiched Generation

“The InLife Sandwich Generation campaign is our way of acknowledging the amazing strength and resilience of these unsung heroes of society who balance the responsibilities of taking care of their elders while also taking care of the younger generation. This initiative is our promise to stand by the millions of Filipinos who are part of the Sandwich Generation. We want to help them un-sandwich themselves and future generations and be able to live A Lifetime for Good. InLife’s product ecosystem is designed to address the pivotal financial milestones of Filipinos. We offer a roadmap to navigate this challenging journey. With this approach, we provide a lifeline that will help them un-sandwich themselves and liberate them from the pressures of multi-generational financial responsibilities and give them the financial independence not just for themselves but also their loved ones.” ~Gae L. Martinez, InLife Chief Marketing Officer

Leave and cleave.

The phrase "Sandwich Generation" refers to a group of people who are expected to care for their parents while also raising their own families. This is a growing group of Filipinos aged 20 to 50 who are estimated to number in the millions.

This normally refers to a husband and wife leaving their respective families to start their own family. Furthermore, it entails prioritizing the new family's needs over those of their respective families. In the Philippines, however, it is customary to support one's parents and siblings while starting one's own family. This is what the Sandwich Generation is all about.

While this phenomenon affects the entire world, the Sandwich Generation in the Philippines faces more pressing challenges.

Due to cultural and societal factors, many Filipinos care for not only their parents but also family members from previous generations (grandparents, uncles, and aunts). They are raising their own families while also supporting their extended family. It is common to hear of Pinoys who must provide financial support for nephews, nieces, and other younger relatives.

InLife: The Un-Sandwiched Generation Campaign

InLife, the country’s first and largest Filipino life insurance company, has taken notice of the Sandwich Generation’s challenges prompting it to launch a campaign to aid the Filipino Sandwich Generation “Un-sandwich” their lives.

Called InLife: The Un-Sandwiched Generation, the new project aims to empower the Pinoy Sandwich Gen with resources and tools for financial planning and management, education planning, caregiving resources, mental health and self-care, and insurance knowledge, among others. Anyone may access these information through different channels, among them, a new microsite within the InLife website, guides, webinars, podcasts, and other forms of content.

According to InLife Chief Marketing Officer Gae L. Martinez, this is InLife’s long-term commitment to be there for the Sandwich Generation. It is a massive challenge but something InLife is more than willing to undertake.

The InLife Product Ecosystem

The campaign also seeks to highlight how financial literacy and planning for the future can help Filipinos free themselves from this cycle but still be able to help their elders while ensuring a good future for themselves. One of the solutions is by taking out insurance products designed to address the different challenges a person will likely encounter in the future.

For example, InLife's Abundance is a savings and insurance plan that matures in either five or ten years and provides guaranteed cash payouts for 20 years or until the age of 65, regardless of market conditions at the time. The guaranteed cash payouts are equal to 10% of the sum insured and are paid every two years beginning at the end of the seventh policy year for the 5-pay variants and the eleventh year for the 10-pay variants, until the plan matures. These cash payouts can be set up as a nest egg, giving the insured a ready source of funds when they reach retirement age.

InLife's Resilience is a critical illness plan that offers life insurance and a guaranteed lump sum cash payment upon diagnosis of a critical illness, among other health benefits. Resilience acts as a buffer against potentially large medical bills, which could have a significant impact on the family's finances.

Wealth Assure Plus, on the other hand, offers a versatile and flexible way to combine life insurance and investment, allowing customers to customize their financial plans based on their needs and budget.

"Cervical Cancer: 'Di mo DeCerv": Igniting Hope in the Fight Against Cervical Cancer

To conclude Cervical cancer awareness month, MSD on the Philippines hosts an event to empower women to protect themselves against HPV and cervical cancer.

Cervical cancer is a concern to women's health worldwide, particularly in the Philippines. Every year, more than 8,000 women in the country are diagnosed, and over 4,000 die as a result. Cervical cancer is the second most frequent disease in Filipino women, particularly those aged 15 to 44. These are dreadful numbers for a disease that is mostly avoidable.

MSD, a healthcare company in the Philippines, hosts the "Cervical Cancer: Di mo DeCerv" event to empower women with a deeper understanding of HPV and cervical cancer, emphasizing the importance of prevention and early detection. The event aims to raise awareness and inspire women to Ake proactive steps in order to protect themselves from cervical cancer. Additionally, the event aims to inspire hope and motivate women to prioritize their health

Understanding Cervical Cancer
Cervical cancer is predominantly caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), which is responsible for 99% of cases. HPV is a common virus that spreads easily through intimate skin-to-skin contact, often without any noticeable symptoms. While many HPV infections clear up on their own, persistent infections with certain types of HPV can cause cervical cancer if left untreated.

The biggest cervical cancer takeaway is this: it's almost completely preventable - something that can't be said in other types of cancer. All thanks to HPV vaccines - cervical cancer is highly preventable.

Di Natin DeCerv ang Cervical Cancer
Cervical Cancer: Di mo DeCerv is attended by medical professionals and health advocates, each with their own stories to tell. Some of the familiar faces, among others, include Andi Manzano and Belay Fernando, both public figures and staunch advocates against the disease.

Andi Manzano-Reyes
Celebrity and influencer Andi Manzano-Reyes shares why she strongly advocates for cervical cancer awareness and prevention. Five months before Andi's wedding, her mother, Rose, was diagnosed with Stage 1B2 cervical cancer after experiencing unexpected bleeding. The diagnosis came as a shock, disrupting their carefree lives. Andi, deeply affected, supported her mother through chemotherapy while managing wedding preparations. Despite the emotional and physical toll, Rose triumphed over the cancer. This experience served as a wakeup call for Andi, and since then she has been a staunch advocate of cervical cancer prevention to protect loved ones from this preventable disease.

Belay Fernando
Bella Fernando de la Cruz, a former player and coach of the Philippine national team for women's football, has dedicated her life to advocating for women's sports. However, her journey took an unexpected turn when she was diagnosed with Stage 3B cervical cancer in 2018. This diagnosis served as a wake-up call, prompting her to reflect on how neglecting her health had led to this preventable disease. Despite initially dismissing concerning symptoms due to her busy lifestyle, Bella soon faced the harsh reality of advanced cervical cancer. Now living with neuropathy, Bella shares her story as a means of giving back, hoping to raise awareness about cervical cancer prevention. Through her advocacy, she aims to empower women to prioritize their health, undergo regular screenings, and get vaccinated, envisioning a future where cervical cancer is no longer a threat.

Through the lens of cervical cancer survivors and advocates, the event brings into sharp focus the real-world impact of prevention and screening. These personal stories share the reality that anyone's life can be touched by cervical cancer and that people should start taking the necessary steps to avoid this disease.

Join The Cause
The Rise Against Cervical Cancer: Di Mo DeCerv event aims to educate the public about HPV and cervical cancer prevention, share inspiring tales from campaigners, and encourage people to join the fight against this avoidable disease. Inform your family and loved ones, visit your doctor about HPV prevention, and contribute to a cervical cancer-free future.
