Japan Tours in September

Japan Tours in September

The month of September is perfect for Japan travel as summer temperatures begin to cool and the autumn season begins for the northern regions of Japan. In late September, the average weather is ideal for a nice walking journey to visit Japan’s more out-of-the-way treasures. And as cities become calmer after the summer festival season, many travelers also find it the right time to tour the country’s top destinations in Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, and more.

September has some of the best weather on average for hiking Japan’s breathtaking trekking and pilgrimage trails. Travel during Japan’s feudal Edo period involved walking great distances, and perhaps the most traveled was the Nakasendo Road, which connected Kyoto with Tokyo via a number of charming “post towns” that maintain an old-fashioned ambience, complete with overnight stays at hot spring ryokan inns and family-owned minshuku guest houses.

Fall comes earlier to the northern regions of Japan, and September is when the leaves of Hokkaido and Tohoku start to put on autumn colors. Travelers are presented with an opportunity for viewing the unmissable attractions of the northern regions at the start of one of Japan’s prettiest seasons. Explore the Kushiro Marshlands, a nationally treasured habitat for the famed red-crowned crane and other wildlife, hike the nature trails of the Shiretoko Peninsula around beauteous lakes and waterfalls, stay overnight in a Buddhist Temple while climbing the Dewa Sanzan sacred mountains, admire the fine detail in the Rice Paddy Art at Inakadate, and view opulent Toshogu Shrine at Nikko.

September offers some excellent opportunity for exploring Japan’s most popular destinations throughout the country. Explore Tokyo’s incredible cultural wonders, the time-honored treasures of Kyoto, Osaka’s mouthwatering street food scene, or embark to somewhere more off-the-beaten-track. This month is a good time for nature-loving travelers to trek the mountainous regions near Kojima, Tsuwano, and Hagi, or take a walk down the old Nakasendo Road to experience Japanese life in the feudal Edo period. Whether you are looking for Japan’s scenic beauties or must-see cultural sights, September is an excellent time to plan a tour of Japan.
