November, March, June... Japan?

Jump to last reply

Am considering booking my next trip to Japan...

Earliest we could go this year would be November, so if we did that, we'd likely focus on Southern half of Japan. We did Kyushu in late October / early November back in 2012.

Anyone have any thoughts on this as a good time of year for Chugoku / Shikoku?

Alternatively, we could look at March or June... I'm deliberately excluding April since that's the high season / sakura and having enjoyed that last year, I'm happy to avoid the higher hotel prices and crowds for the next trip.

For March, would it be reasonably warm, dry, sunny in Chugoku / Shikoku? Or do we need to be farther south?

For June, would be it nice weather in Northern Japan, say Tohoku or Hokkaido?

Any thoughts?

(I've been ruling out December, January, February as I am not looking for a winter / snow visit but actually, what's Okinawa like in December, January?)
