Reasons to Visit Japan Now
Beautiful throughout the seasons and at any time of the year, Japan is a country not to be missed. Each season offers its own specialties, from seasonal cuisine to festivities.
While the heat and humidity may be intense for some visitors, summer is one of the best times to visit Japan. It is a chance to witness and partake in cultural festivals and recreational activities. From street fairs to shrine festivals, the events of summer are not to be missed. There are endless reasons to visit Japan. Here are a few reasons why visitors should visit NOW.
1. Summer events
As previously mentioned, summer is the time for summer festivals. Among these are famous events such as Gion Matsuri in Kyoto.
2. Exchange rate
With the yen weak in comparison to the dollar, now is a great time to visit Japan. Dining out is also more affordable in Japan, as it is the custom to not give a tip, which can reduce bills by 20%.
3. Summer is a time to challenge yourself and return with a new perspective for autumn
There is no greater feeling than returning from a summer of adventure with a fresh mind for autumn. Visiting Japan this summer will provide visitors a new perspective with which to return and take on work and personal life.
4. See all the changes occurring in anticipation of Olympics
With the 2020 Olympics taking place in Tokyo, major changes are occurring in the great metropolitan these days. From the construction of new buildings to the restructuring of public transportation, there is no time like the present to witness the future in the making.
We hope the aforementioned reasons were an incentive to consider visiting Japan this summer. If you’re still thinking it over, perhaps the best question to ask is, why not?
