Spring in Japan

Spring is eagerly awaited in Japan and cherry-blossom and plum-blossom time can differ in as much as six weeks between the Kyushu and Hokkaido. The flowering of the cherry blossom - sakura - is celebrated by Japanese during an event called hanami. As the blossoms slowly appear on their gradual march northwards, their advance is usually covered in detail by the national media.

The spring period of March to May and autumn months of September through November are relatively mild and generally seen as the best time to visit - the weather is usually warm and sunny, but fresher and drier than in summer or autumn.

*Golden Week
There are a number of national holidays around the end of April and the beginning of May, and its now that many Japanese take a week’s holiday. With seemingly the entire population on the roads, the trains or in the air, this is not the best time of year to be on the move. Hotels and resorts fill up quickly too, so if you are coming around this time, book transport and accommodation well in advance
