Planning Your Next Travel Vacation to Japan Using Custom Travel Packages

When to go to Japan for the best experience

This island country has a varied and unpredictable climate. The southern areas are warm and humid, with islands covered with palm trees and a beachy atmosphere, while the northern sections are rugged and experience various seasons. When chilly air from Siberia collides with warm air from the Pacific, the result is a harsh winter for cities that front the Sea of Japan. The end effect was extreme cold, along with heavy snowfall and ski resorts.

The side that faces the Pacific Ocean receives less snow, although the larger cities on Honshu (Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, and Kyoto) still have frigid winters. Summers? Aside from Hokkaido, the rest of the country is experiencing hot and humid weather. The short rainy season in Japan begins in June, while the typhoon season lasts from August all the way through October.

Golden Week, which runs from the end of April to the beginning of May, and the O-Bon holiday, which falls in the middle of August, are the two busiest holiday periods in Japan overall. On the other hand, Japan comes to a virtual standstill during the New Year holiday (Shogatsu).

Tokyo’s Yabu Soba

Customers come from all across Japan to patronize this store, which is now in its sixth generation. Traditional delicacies including Japanese sashimi, yuba, grilled nori, and soba are served by servers dressed in kimonos. Listen attentively, because your orders are going to be sung to the chef at this establishment, which is both genuine and delectable.

Activities available in Japan

Plenty of visitors to Japan use group tours to see the sights and ensure they have fellow visitors who speak the same language. Book a custom travel package with to see one or many of the following attractions.

Asakusa, Tokyo

Take a stroll through Nakamise Dori to find traditional mementos like yukata, paper lanterns, and folding fans. Senso-ji, Tokyo’s oldest temple, is near manju and ningyo yaki. Items like pottery, tea kettles, and steak knives are some of the wares that may be bought in bulk from Kappabashi. There are several well-known tempura eateries in the region. Take a journey along the Sumida River; there are several tour boats found in the area.

Harajuku, Tokyo

Harajuku has taken the place of Halloween this year. In this instance, adolescents subvert the established norms of fashion by establishing their own: Kawaii, which literally means “cute,” attire that imitates children’s toys and is created with the assistance of decoras. Wamono are fusions of Japanese and Western culture, while cosplays are based on anime and/or cartoons.


The Japanese have nothing but praise for these castles. One of the most well-known castles in Japan is Osaka Castle, which is located close to Kyoto. This castle is particularly well-known during the hanami season (when cherry blossoms are in bloom). Himeji Castle, located a little farther away, is known by its Japanese moniker of Hakurojo due to its bird-like appearance and hilltop position (White Egret Castle).

National Park of the Shiretoko Mountains

Shiretoko National Park lies in eastern Hokkaido on the Shiretoko Peninsula. Take a dip in one of the park’s steaming waterfalls, Kamuiwakka Falls, or go on a boat ride along the park’s rocky coastline. The park’s most inaccessible parts can only be reached on foot or by boat. During the winter months, the shore of the Sea of Okhotsk is a picturesque place to see the Siberian drift ice.

Takayama Festival

Takayama is a traditional city in Gifu’s steep hillside area. The Takayama Festival which takes place twice a year in the spring and the autumn is widely regarded as Japan’s premier event. For two days, enormous floats and portable shrines parade through Takayama’s ancient town. Evening festivals and karakuri performances include dancing mechanical dolls.


Japan is a wonderful place to celebrate the New Year. Have a bonenkai celebration to bid farewell to the previous year and forget the troubles of the past year as the Japanese do. On the eve of the New Year, the house is cleaned, toshikoshi soba is eaten (for good fortune), and pine, bamboo, and plum trees are used to decorate the inside of the home.
