It is indeed Japanese. If noöne else beats me to it, I can attempt a translation in a few days.

My Japanese is rusty as fuck, but it looks like it says:
この夏に本気で愛をしたい。
"This summer I really want to love."

Except that I'm not sure at all about that last kanji, cause it doesn really look like 愛, so the "love" part might be totally wrong.

I think it's 恋 (koi). Not sure with the i mora is in kana, since koi is a noun though :hmm:
恋 and 愛 are near synonyms though, so the translation is probably the same.
