We offer Autumn Tours in Japan based on your requirements. We can design your trip to suit your interests, time and budget. After the long, hot summer, autumn arrives like a cool breeze, sweeping all the heat away! Typhoons are a threat at this time of year, especially from August through October, but they often leave cool, clear air in their wake. Be sure to check local forecasts, as weather conditions vary widely across Japan. September can still be as hot and humid as August, but eventually it cools down, and we usually stop using our air conditioner by the end of the month. October and November are arguably the most pleasant months in Japan. During these months the sky is high, the air is fresh, and it's neither too hot nor too cold. Rains do fall, but they are neither as long nor as heavy as those in summer. In Autumn, you can you see a Rabbit in the Moon! Moon-viewing is also an event, held around the autumnal equinox on the 22nd. Like its vernal counterpart in March, this is a national holiday devoted to cleaning the graves of the ancestors. Thanks to theme parks like Disney Resorts and Universal Studios Japan, the fun tradition of Halloween festivities has taken root here, at least in the form of cosplay parades and candy marketed for the occasion. While decorations start coming out from the beginning of September, it can still be hard to find a real orange pumpkin! For foodies, "kabocha" (squash) flavored soup and delicacies will mark the season. Don't be surprised if you see small children dressed up for trick or treating, but they are actually going to English class! Another event in Japan in Autumn is "Koyo" Autumn Foliage. Similar to the Sakura season in early spring, autumn foliage ("Koyo" here) follows a path along the length of the archipelago, starting in October in Hokkaido and extending to early December in Kyushu. One tip is to check your destination for its season, but usually it will be from mid-November. As with flower viewing, any public park, garden, shrine or temple will boast at least one, and often many, gorgeous "Kaede" maple trees.
