The northern and southern regions of Japan can be said to be very different. However, overall, if you want to avoid the snow season, come in March-May and September-November.

3. Best time to visit Disneyland

If you want to visit amusement rides like Tokyo Disneyland, it's best to come in spring and fall. While enjoying the exciting rides, you can enjoy the view of the blooming cherry blossoms.

5. Worst time to visit Japan

Weather in Japan can not be the same in all regions. Different regions, different weather. It could be that the weather in one area could be very good, but in another it could be very bad. However, if you are going to Tokyo and the rest of Japan, except Okinawa, avoid visiting from June to mid-July. In these months, it will rain every day. Meanwhile, in that month, the weather in Hokkaido and Okinawa will be very sunny. In addition, Tokyo and Kyoto will be humid and hot from July to August. That's the best time for an exciting vacation to Japan. You will find beautiful destinations at the right time in Sakura Country. How about you, do you have an idea where and when?
