Best Time to Travel

The best times to visit Japan are the climatically stable seasons of spring 
(March to May) and autumn (September to November).

Spring is the time when Japan’s famous cherry trees burst into bloom, 
but the blooms last only a week, so timing a visit around this event is 

Autumn is an equally good time to travel, with pleasant temperatures 
and brilliant autumn colors. 

Traveling during either winter or summer is a mixed bag – midwinter 
(December to February) weather can be cold, while the summer months 
(June to August) are generally hot and often humid. June is also the 
month of Japan’s brief rainy season, which in some years brings daily 
downpours and in other years is hardly a rainy season at all.


The most distinctive of all Far Eastern countries, Japan has an original 
identity that is instantly engaging and delightfully full of enigma 
and contradiction. Throughout Japan, visitors will find tradition and 
modernity, simplicity and intricacy, elegance and ostentation. Experience 
the adrenaline rousing rush of Tokyo in the morning, and be calmed by 
the timeless beauty of Kyoto in the afternoon. Japanese cuisine is now 
internationally revered and Tokyo has the most Michelin Star restaurants 
of any city in the world. In addition to enjoying some exquisite meals, 
why not add a cooking class and learn how to make some favorite dishes 
at home.

Best of Japan

14 days / 13 nights

Tokyo • Hakone/Mt Fuji • Takayama • Shirakawago • Hiroshima • Kyoto




pp based on double occupancy

For those lucky travelers with enough time, this vacation truly covers all of the most noteworthy destinations on Honshu, the main island of Japan.  Starting from the north in Tokyo, 
then sweeping west then south, travelers get a comprehensive overview of not only the most commonly visited places - Tokyo, Hakone and Kyoto -  but also those which add extra 
depth and richness to the Japan experience.

Takayama has an old town that takes the traveler back in time, and a twice yearly festival that people from all over the country love. Shirakawago is best know for its rustic gassho-
zukuri style farmhouses,  and Kanazawa is a rival to Kyoto as a cultural gem, but has the added attraction of Kenroku-en garden, one of the finest in all Japan. A trip to Hiroshima is 
both sobering and inspiring, while Miyajima is simply awe-inspring.  Nara was once the Imperial capital and imparts a strong sense of history.
