Japan Holidays

Spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) are the two most comfortable seasons in which to visit Japan, when there is little rainfall, skies are clear and temperatures are mild. The best time to see cherry blossoms in most of the major cities is early April, however, they can bloom as early as June on the islands of Okinawa and as late as May on the northern island of Hokkaido. The rainy season is generally from the end of May to mid-July and the humidity is high through summer. Come autumn, leaves turn red and gold and Japan is ablaze with colour. The winter months (December to February) are very cold and excellent conditions for skiing and winder pursuits.
