Best time to visit Japan

Japan is all about the seasons. Whether its the pink hue of springtime when the cherry blossoms come out in bloom, or when the country transforms into stunning shades of yellow, orange and red during autumn. Winter is equally beautiful, especially on the northern isle of Hokkaido when the landscape becomes covered in crisp white snow.

Japan Seasons

Weather conditions vary in Japan depending on location and time of year. Typically summers are hot and humid, whilst winters are significantly colder - especially in the mountains, with a dry climate and light snowfall. Spring and Autumn offer warm days and cool nights, making this a wonderful time to explore the highlights of Japan. June is considered the rainy season with hot and muggy weather. Temperatures do vary depending on the region, so be sure to check in advance when travelling to the far north or far south of Japan.
