Monthly weather averages in Japan
From the subtropical shores of Okinawa to the powdered slopes of Hokkaido, Japan enjoys a varied climate with four distinct seasons. Summers are wet and humid, and winter often sees heavy snow in the north. However, spring and autumn are warm and sunny, perfect for enjoying the cherry blossoms or the autumnal foliage.
The best times to travel to Japan are from March to May and from September to November when skies are clear and temperatures are mild and pleasant.
From the noble traditions of the ancient Samurai warriors to the delicate fragrance of cherry blossoms, Japan is a country steeped in history and lore
In this country with two identities, your stay in Japan leads you through a transition from the buzz of the metropolis to the calm of the Shinto sanctuaries.
With the flowering cheery blossom and traditional wooden houses, your all inclusive stay in Japan will lead you on a journey to discover sophisticated scenery. Beyond the iconic landmark: Mount Fuji and its snowy white peak rise to 3776m while further to the South, in Kyoto, a unique opportunity for a zen walking excursion awaits you. The Arashiyama bamboo plantation will leave you feeling like you’ve stepped into the film “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."
Make the most of your stay in Japan and learn the local Japanese habits and customs. Recentre yourself in Kyoto, in the Fushimi Inari Taisha sanctuary, which is renowned for the thousands of torii (traditional gateways) which guide worshippers over several kilometres. The Nikko temples and sanctuaries are also sacred. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, spirituality and nature entwine here in this religious complex, tucked away in the heart of the forest. Modernity has also left its mark on Japanese culture. The Shibuya crossing in Tokyo is the incarnation of Japan’s ultra-connected culture, as wooden houses stand next to towering glass buildings.
The country is proud of a certain cultural exception. To see it for yourself, head to Tokyo to witness a sumo tournament and show your support for these giants on the tatami. To discover fighters from a more distant past, visit the medieval castle of Shuri. The seat of the kingdom of Ryukyu was protected by the legendary Samurai for many centuries. After so many emotions, take the time to slip into an onsen. These indoor and outdoor natural hot springs, hidden away in the mountainside, are highly popular, especially Hoheikyo Onsen in Hokkaido. And here you are, ready to take on the Hokkaido ski trails, just a few minutes from your Club Med Tomamu Hokkaido and Sahoro Hokkaido resorts; that is, unless you prefer to make the most of your all inclusive stay in Japan to chill out on the beaches of the Okinawa Archipelago and your Club Med Kabira Ishigaki, just to remind you that heaven might just be a place on Earth.
