Japan Tours in May

Japan Tours in May

Guests on our May Tours experience what is usually Japan’s best weather for traveling. May begins with what Japanese call “Golden Week” – the sun is out, the flowers are in bloom, there are local festivals, and everyone wants to take a trip. Tour Japan in May for some of the best scenes of Japan in springtime – you can see some last-minute cherry blossoms in addition to the rest of Japan coming into bloom. Travelers come to Hokkaido in search of the last of the cherry blossoms and are rewarded with incredible views in Hakodate; star-shaped Fort Goryokaku blushes from point to point in pastel pink and white flowers. Matsumae City is an especially lively cherry blossom scene, where one of the last cherry blossom festivals of the season is hosted at Matsumae Castle. The park surrounding the castle bursts with spring color, with over 250 varieties of cherry blossom reaching peak loveliness throughout the month.

Venture down through Japan’s main island for other floral visions of springtime beauty. While the cherry blossom is most identified with springtime in Japan, the islands have many gardens and parks filled with seasonal flowers to admire. In Tochigi, visitors are awe-struck by the great wisteria in Ashikaga Flower Park. Long trails of vines twine through large trellises, dangling violet flowers overhead like suspended drops of rain. Travelers to Ibaraki are presented with a dreamy sea of baby blue eyes waving over rolling hills at Hitachi Seaside Park. And in the Fuji Five Lakes region, the Fuji Shibazakura Festival beckons tourists to stroll beside Lake Motosu among a romantic spring carpet of phlox moss, patterned in a patchwork quilt of violet, magenta, pastel pink, and white.

Visit Kyoto during May for the Aoi Matsuri – a historical festival that takes visitors back to the over a thousand years to the Heian period. It features a long procession of people decked in the style of classical Japanese nobility.

Travelers along the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route during May can view verdant spring scenes in the Japan Alps, traveling a route through what has been called the “roof of Japan.” May is one of the overall best times for hiking and trekking the numerous hiking trails in general, and whether you prefer the finding mountain temples along the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, the more easygoing Nakasendo Trail through the heart of traditional Japan, or other cultural hikes in Kyushu or Shikoku, you can count on some unforgettable views of historical treasures and natural beauty. Take advantage of one of Japan’s best travel seasons to experience a May tour of Japan.
