Plotting an itinerary for a holiday is a task for any person, but when the destination is a country of bustling mega-metropolises, pockets of peaceful enclaves and a custom truly like no other, be very prepared to leave any potential to-do list on the plane. Underpinned by its wonderfully unique culture, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to claim that Japan is unlike any other destination in the world with its effortless blend of forward-thinking and tradition. Known as the ‘Land of the Rising Sun’, Japan is headlined by its spectacular capital city of Tokyo, widely regarded as the biggest in the world.

Poetically titled ‘The Land of the Rising Sun’, the endemic beauty and charm of Japan can be found as much in its unique and hugely engaging culture as it can in its spectacular natural beauty.

Come to Japan to see the iconic scenes of snow-dusted Mount Fuji, parks flourishing in pink cherry blossom and exquisitely attired geishas shuffling across your path, but stay for a lifestyle that intriguingly blends distinctive age-old traditions with famously modern thinking.

No matter how you plan to visit Japan, there is certainly no substitute for allowing yourself to simply experience it. Book a Japan holiday with Travelbag and prepare to immerse yourself in an extraordinary culture like no other...

Packing tips

A trip to Japan is bound to be an adventure and there’s no doubt you’ll want to have planned a mixture of cities, countryside and wild landscapes. The great thing about Japan is that it truly offers all of these.

For packing, it’s best to think about where you’ll be spending the most time. If you plan on mainly jumping between cities, then packing some comfy clothes for sightseeing is what you’ll want to prioritise. And some smarter outfit for sampling the famous nightlife too! We’d also advise you to purchase some shoes that are easy to slip on and off (don’t worry, they don’t have to be the traditional wooden slippers!) but having something easy to remove is important and time-saving, because many restaurants and temples will require footwear to be taken off.

If your trip is going to be centred around the great outdoors and the many national parks in Japan, you’ll want to pack some strong hiking boots, and a variety of outdoor-wear that will see you through different weather types.

Weather in Japan

The weather in Japan is generally mild, which makes it an easy place for tourists and travellers to acclimatise to. The country has four distinct seasons: Winter, from December to February, and summer between June and August, when the country can get pretty hot and humid.

Spring is from March to May and tends to be the most popular time for visitors to arrive – which is unsurprising as the temperature is comfortable and pleasant during these months.
