Summers in Japan are known to be hot and humid during most days, but that shouldn't stop anyone from experiencing an amazing trip to Japan. Summertime is the season of fireworks, festivals, food, and more. Find yourself at one of many of Japan's lively celebrations and indulge in delicious street vendor food underneath an incredible fireworks show. Or if you wish to escape the sultry summer air, traveling to northern parts of Japan is a great way to do so. Enjoy comfortable, warm weather during a scenic hike through the lush, mountainous regions of Japan.

Visiting Japan in June
June is typically the wettest month of the year, excluding Hokkaido. Visiting Japan in June is perfect for seeing the gorgeous lavender and flower fields in Hokkaido, the northernmost island of Japan. Hokkaido has the most mild climate during summer in Japan and offers picturesque landscapes to explore. 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. This includes witnessing the fiery warrior floats of the Aomori Nebuta Festival, impressive bamboo-hoisting skills at the Akita Kanto Festival, and making wishes at the colorful streamer-decorated Sendai Tanabata Festival. Don't forget to dance the night away at the Awa Odori Festival, a one of a kind celebration that is highly recommended for all travelers visiting Japan in August.
