Best Time To Travel To Japan
Best Time To Travel To Japan – I’ll give you some idea when is the best time to travel to Japan and when you’d better avoid. At first, I’d better explain Japanese holidays. As you can imagine, during those holidays are high season for domestic tourists, means fee is expensive. There are big holidays: The golden week, from end of April to beginning of May. It changes depending on the day of the week. For example, the golden week of this year started April 26 till May 6. And 2017, it starts April 25 and ends May 6. During summer vacation period, August, is relatively expensive. And During Obon period when is from August 13 to August 16. If 16 is Sat, people get offs till Sun. And another big holidays are New Year’s holidays, generally, Dec 29 to Jan 3. But, as you can imagine, it changes depending the day of the week. So, from 2014 to 2015’s New Year’s Holiday, will be from Dec 27 to Jan 4. There is spring break. Usually the end of March to Beginning of April.
This is not a big holiday, but for some destination, price gets high. So, I recommend you to check. And yes, this is the time of cherry blossom season. People say it’s one of the best season to visit Japan. Like I mention, during this periods, price varies depending on the destination. So, you might get a good deal. And there is a holiday we call it the silver week. In 2015, it starts Sep 19 till Sep 23. This wouldn’t happen every year, though. We have law of holidays and if we follow it next year. This will happen. And I have to mention for a few things.
Okinawa during summer time and Hokkaido during winter time is high season for domestic tourists. So, of course, price is high. Plus, from my experience, during August, Hokkaido, especially Sapporo. Price is super expensive and really hard to find place to stay. Also, during Snow festival in Sapporo, from Feb 5 to 11. It’s super expensive and hard to find place to stay. So, the best time to travel to Japan is. Drum roll please!!! There are 3 time of the year I can recommend. First.From the end of the spring break to the beginning of the Golden week. It means from around April 5,6,7 to around April 25. Second.After the Golden week to the beginning of summer vacation. It means from May 7 to the end of July. But usually in June. We have rainy season. So, please notice that. Third. During the beginning of autumn. It means from October to November. During this period, usually the weather is nice to travel. And you’ll see many autumn colors momiji. Leaves are changing colors to reds and yellows. Like cherry blossoms in spring, I think you’ll enjoy them. And despite of big holidays, popular spots can get very crowded on the weekends during autumn color peak.
Especially, Kyoto is crazy!!! So try to avoid the weekends during that time! So, I hope you can get some ideas when to travel to Japan, though. Let me know what you think.The Best Time To Travel To Japan 2017
