Golden Week Bad for Travel in Japan ?

Jump to last reply

Hi Fodorites,

My husband and I are considering a last minute trip to Japan from about 20 April to 2 May.

I am wondering if we should be concerned about the Japanese holidays affecting train or plane travel or hotel reservations.

Alternatives to Japan are welcome too. Maybe part of China (golden week there a concern ?) or Vietnam (weather in north turning to rain ?) We have visited Thailand, Cambodia, Burma in the past.

Thank you,
Bonnie
