When to go

Generally, March to May (late Spring) is the best time to visit as the weather is clear and fine, and when you can enjoy the cherry blossoms. June to August (Summer) is hot and humid and is a great time to hike Mt. Fuji. September to November (late Autumn) is a great time to see the maple trees though rainfall and typhoons are more regular. December to February (Winter) is a perfect time to go skiing and snowboarding. Learn More


In recent years there's been quite a number of cases of measles in Japan while Japanese encephalitis (a mosquito-borne disease) can occur in rural areas of the country. Japan has strict rules governing importing medicine so it is important to do your research before you leave. Learn More
