It is most notable for its Furano Flower Fields, where the sweet scent of lavender fills the air and visitors can enjoy charming views of numerous flower varieties.

Visiting Japan in July

Visiting Japan in July is one of the most lively times of the year. It is also the month of the Gion Matsuri, or Gion Summer Festival. It is the most famous festival in Japan, consisting of numerous events and a grand procession of floats. It's hard not to run into local festivals and firework displays during this time. July is also an excellent time to visit Mt. Fuji, where visitors will even climb to the top under favorable weather conditions. Although July is typically a rainy season, it doesn't stop others from enjoying the list of events that take place this month.

Visiting Japan in August

High-spirited festivals and exciting fireworks continue into the month of August in Japan. Visiting Japan in August allows opportunities to see the Three Great Summer Festivals of Tohoku.
