When is the best time to visit Japan?
Best Time to Visit Japan Now that you’ve decided to visit Japan, you maybe wondering when is the best time to take your trip. I will give you some ideas. Japan has four distinct seasons. In my opinion, spring and fall, when the weather is mild is the best time for traveling. Let’s take a look at each season. Spring (March-May) Plum blossoms start blooming at the end of February. You can visit plum festivals in parks and gardens. See Japanese Plum Festivals Sakura or cherry blossoms bloom in March and April on the main land in Japan. Viewing the pretty sakura flowers is a main reason for many travelers to visit Japan. See Japanese Cherry Blossom Links There is a popular Japanese vacation season called Golden week (around April 29 to around May 5.) I recommend avoiding traveling to Japan in this season if you can. Summer (June-August) June and the beginning of July is the Japanese rainy season called Tsuyu. If you don’t like rain avoid this time. I think it can be a cool and nice time to
I think that it’s spring. If you are planning to travel there with your partner, I can recommend traveling to Thailand for example. Japan is a crowded place and expensive. I used to take a photo session by https://dimasfrolov.com/portfolio/couple/ there. It’s a beautiful island with nature, so it wouldn’t be a problem to take a plane to Thai, it’s near.
I agree that spring and autumn are the best times to visit Japan. I’ve only been there in October, and it was lovely! Kyoto area in autumn is so beautiful! A lot of people prefer spring months because it’s when the cherry trees blossom, but I personally don’t like to observe nature being surrounded by thousands of travellers. Winter could be a good season for package deals, as it’s considered a low season (unless you want to ski). Summer is humid and rainy, so it’s better to avoid this time.
There are lots of great sources to help you plan the trip to Japan based on seasonal experiences. For example, RoveMe gives you a rank on the best time to visit Japan depending on seasonal activities. Roughguides gives a nice brief overview of four distinct seasons in Japan, and also a list of must-visit places (one of my favourite guidebooks!).
Hope I can go back to Japan another time too 🙂
