Shibazakura festival

When asked about the best season for visiting Japan, autumn is often what springs to mind for repeat visitors. The blue skies of October and November carry none of the heat and oppressive humidity of summer, whilst remaining warm enough to make it feel like you’ve escaped the grey skies of the UK!

The best thing about travelling to Japan in autumn, however, has to be the red, gold and amber hues that paint the trees, decorating the mountains with a kaleidoscope of colours.

Autumn leaf viewing spots can be found all over the country – though we highly recommend Kamikochi in Nagano, as well as temple-filled Nikko.

In a country where the landmass is 72% mountainous, it’s not hard to find a picture-perfect location to pass an autumn holiday in Japan. What’s more, as this season lasts for several months, prices tend to remain neutral rather than sky rocketing – though we do recommend booking accommodation well in advance!
