Some of my best memories from childhood are of the vacations my family took each year -- usually one or two weeks. We often went camping, or sightseeing famous places around the USA. I am told that Japanese companies do not allow salarymen to take their paid vacation time. Is this true? Did your family take annual vacations for one week together?

About my family, we have travellar 2 or 3 days twice a year. Golden week and the Bon Festinal, my parents have 4 or 5 holidays, and they take me and my sister by my fathers car. Every year I'm looking forward to do it.

I can little take vacations because my father is salarymen. But in the summer he could take holidays. I spent it go to somewhere with my family when I was child. we went camping or went to parent's hometown or trip. So, I took annual vacations for one week together.
