The most popular season to travel to Japan is spring as this season is spectacular in many ways.
While during wintertime people in Japan tend to stay indoors where it is cozy and warm and many of the streets are deserted or much more quiet than usual, summer is the liveliest season in the country of the rising sun.
The fall season is an underappreciated tourist season in Japan. After the worst of the summer heat and humidity disappears, it still stays pleasantly warm in the Japanese fall.
Although Japan welcomes most tourists in spring and summer, for those who are looking for a more quiet time and a different kind of experience, winter can be a great time to discover Japan.

In Japan, a very important national tradition returns every year in the early spring. Everybody gets together outside, prepares a picnic mat under the blooming cherry trees (sakura trees), and shares food and drinks.
The period between early November to early December is a great time to come to Japan. You will see gorgeous panoramas that the changing leaves bring, and the tourist crowds are decidedly less compared to summer.
Around the end of May to early June, some people in Japan become a bit restless, and you might wonder why that is. It is because ‘taue’, the rice planting season, has started again!
