WHEN TO GO
An archipelagic nation that stretches over 3,000km from north to south, travel to Japan can be made year-round throughout its four distinct seasons. A popular time to visit is the cherry blossom season in March and April. Summer is ideal for hitting the mountaintop ski resorts of Hokkaido; autumn is great for chrysanthemum shows and maple viewing; while year-end is a good time to visit Kyushu and Okinawa for their warmer and milder winters.
