Japan Holidays

Japan is an incredible country to explore, and if you’re only planning on visiting once, you’ll want to make the most of your time there and factor in plenty of time to see the highlights. That will include Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka as an absolute minimum for most people. To make exploring simple, a Japan cruise can be an excellent way to travel effortlessly around the country, but be sure to choose an itinerary that allows you to experience a ride on a bullet train and catch the view from Mount Fuji.

When is the best time to visit Japan for cherry blossom season?

The most popular areas for cherry blossom viewing experience the bloom in March and April. If you travel around this time of year, you should have a good chance of seeing the powder-pink display, particularly if your itinerary takes you to different parts of Japan. The cherry blossom usually emerges in the south of the country first at the end of March and spreads north over the following weeks.

Avoid Golden Week

While spring sounds like a great time to come to Japan, please try to avoid Golden Week.
Golden Week is an accumulation of national holidays from the end of April to early May (usually from April 29th to May 6th).

It’s the high season for traveling in Japan. Everything including accommodation and transportation will cost more than usually. Hotels will be booked out far in advance.
It will be crowded almost everywhere in Japan. You’ll need longer than planned, because buses are so full that you’ll have to wait for the next one.

There are traffic jams and long waiting lines. You won’t be able to take good photos, because there are too many people in the way. It’s a lot harder to enjoy the sights and it’s more stressful in general.
