Considering that the islands of Japan lay in the temperate northeastern parts of the world, the climate is mostly mild and summer begins around the month of July. That means the best time for holidays in Japan is late June to October.  Up until then, Japan experiences its rainy season which can often be quiet heavy as it lays in the monsoon areas.

From July onward days are sunny and mild making it pleasant for travellers, during this time it is early spring so if you want to see the beautiful cherry blossoms in bloom, choose the end of July as this is a perfect time to plan your holidays in Japan.

The Japanese People

The Japanese are extremely polite to foreigners and very welcoming but know that it is a densely populated country so the cities will always be hives of activity.  Japan has its own unique religious beliefs and Buddhism is important with arts and architecture strongly influenced by this religion.

The other main religious group is Shinto-ism that is a religion founded on legends, myths, and ritual practices dating back centuries.

Some of the Japanese respect both religions and because of this there are never any religious clashes.
