The sun is rising and you can listen to the beautiful soft music of a flute. You are flying at great speeds though the green countryside dotted with pink fields, you pass the neon lights of big cities, and in the distance you can see volcanos floating in the mist. Shinkanzen stops in enchanting Kyoto. A geisha is just dancing in the imperial palace and a Samurai is in a Zen garden, demonstrating his sword skills at the sound of a gong. Ubiquitous bonsai trees and blooming Japanese cherries surprise you with their perfection. Can you smell the irresistible scent of a sakura flower? Follow the sunrise to the other end of the world, to a country with deep traditions and the birthplace of the modern high-tech industry.

 

Japan has monsoon climate, moderate in the north, subtropical in the middle and tropical climate in the south. The winter monsoon brings snow, summer monsoon brings rain. Typhoons are frequent in fall. Coniferous forests grow in the north, changing into deciduous and evergreen subtropical forests in the south. The ideal time to visit is from March to May. All the flowers and trees are in bloom with bright colors. Temperatures are pleasant and the sky is mostly sunny, with occasional rain. Another time suitable for visiting Japan is fall (September and October). Trees shine with warm colors, and orange and red leaves create a magical atmosphere in the fall sunlight.
