The rainy season is usually not a preferred travel season in Japan.
However, here are my 8 reasons why you should visit Japan during the rainy season!
① Everyone avoids Japan.
① The sightseeing spots are not that crowded.
① Hotels and flights might be cheaper than in Sakura season or autumn leaf season.
① It is not too cold and not too hot.
① There are still not as many mosquitoes as in summer and autumn!
① It is not raining every day, you might get a week full of sunny weather!
① The Hydrangea bloom is wonderful! You should visit famous Hydrangea spots! (But be sure to visit on a rainy day. It is crowded otherwise..)
① Japanese gardens are the most beautiful in the rain!
The green is shining, the moss is green and you will have a very special atmosphere.
It is hard to explain… But when you once sat down in a tea house at the open door and watched the garden while rain dropped on the roof and created a soothing sound, you will know what I mean.
So what.. I love the rainy season!
You should try!
