Japan is famous for its celebrations all year around. Whether it’s a seasonal occurrence, cultural event, or a holiday, foreigners can attend one of Japan’s many festivals (matsuri) during every season. Depending on when you plan to visit Japan, you can research and include at least one Japanese celebration in your Japan itinerary for a first-hand experience in Japanese culture.

Celebrate the new year in Japan, the most important holiday of Japan, by visiting a temple, shrine, or having a bonenkai party (“year forgetting party”). During the cherry blossom season in spring, foreigners can attend one of hundreds of cherry blossom festivals found all over Japan. Summer in Japan means hot summer festivals and colorful firework events, attracting thousands of travelers every year. In autumn, visitors can enjoy stunning autumn leaves festivals. Whatever the case may be, there is always a celebration in Japan for travelers to experience.
