JAPAN

WHEN TO TRAVEL

Best Bet

Recommended times to travel  Japan are March and November for good weather and slightly lesser crowds than Japan's peak seasons of April-May and October-November.

 

Things to consider and possibly avoid

  • June, July and August are hot and humid.

  • June is Japan's wettest month.

  • August-October is typhoon season.  

  • Cherry blossom season (March, April) and fall foliage (October, November) are ideal seasons weather wise but also bring on the highest number of visitors.  

  • Winters are mild but Christmas to the New Year and Lunar New Year (one week between January and February) are best avoided as travel becomes hectic and chaotic with domestic tourists.
