The Kansai Region Travel Guide

When to Go

Spring (March to May) and fall (September to November) are the best times to visit the Kansai region. The cherry blossoms flower mid-March to early April, and the autumn leaves are brightest late October to early November. Though summer (June to August) is very hot and sticky, winter is relatively balmy. There's an erratic rainy season, mostly in June.
