However, Japan is alive throughout the year, no matter what the month. Here are just a few of the recommended festivals along with their seasonal dates. Depending on the Festival, it may be necessary to book accommodation and any other attractions well in advance, as most Festivals in Japan (especially the Metropolitan Centers) attract many onlookers

We had an incredible trip to Japan. Scott Kent planned it with our input and was careful to include all of our special requests. Our English speaking guides andassistants were just wonderful; informative, friendly and delightful to spend our days with learning about Japan. We enjoyed our hotels; The Tokyo Station Hotel, Kinnotake Tonosawa in Hakone and the Kyoto Hotel Okura were all wonderful. The hotel on Miyajima island was just ok. We saw other rooms that were lovely but ours was not one of those. We let Scott know and while he tried to get us moved the hotel was full. Not a game changer for sure. Our guide Misayo brought Tokyo alive for us as did Mira in Kyoto. Ms. Hase in Hiroshima was also wonderful. The food was one of the most memorable experiences; shabu shabu, Kaiseki, Okonomiyage, Sushi, Sashimi, Tempura and more. The Golden Temple and the Shrine of 10,000 Tori Gates were breathtaking. We loved the mountains surrounding Kyoto and the mountains of Hakone. Bullet trains and subways were amazing...always on time to the minute. We loved the people, the cleanliness and of course our visit with our Geiko-san in Kyoto was unforgettable. One suggestion - Carry less luggage. Highly recommend that when traveling in Japan, carry only a carry-on as it makes train and subway travel much easier.... READ MORE
