Not Too Hot, Not Too Cold

by Mieke - TripleLights travel specialist

The temperature in autumn in Japan is just right: not too hot, not too cold, but complimented by a fair amount of sunshine. You miss the humid, hot summer. This season can be survived only with the help of ‘cooling gel’ and the occasional flight into a convenience store with maximum force airco. Also, you can evade winter, which is also not too bad, but it can get cold, and you run the risk of getting stuck in your hotel because public traffic stops running when snow falls (which is something my friend experienced for some 3 days in winter 2013). Spring is another popular season to visit the country because of the sakura blooming. But the colourful sights of autumn can definitely compete with that if you ask me. In autumn, you can enjoy the lingering summer heat and still walk outside at night with only a t-shirt on (and maybe a pair of pants if you want to avoid getting arrested).

Kaori was just amazing. Our groups was a mix of people in their mid 60s and mid 30s she kept out attention throughout the day. We covered all the shrines and other points of interest in a timely manner. She planned the trip using a series of trains and walking, the pace of walking was appropriate.

With only 24 hours to spend in Tokyo, we reached out to Yoshihisa for ideas around how to cover as much of Tokyo as we possibly could in such a short time frame. Yoshi recommended an electric bike tour that would hit the highlights in the 2 half days we were there and we simply could not have done it without him! Yoshi put together a great itinerary and was a joy to be around. I would highly re...

My husband and I spent our first day in Kyoto visiting 4 spectacular sites as well as a visit to the Gion district with Hiroshi. We would not have been able to navigate through the city so efficiently without his expertise. Hiroshi was professional yet fun and engaging. Thank you for a great day Hiroshi and your kind gift of chocolate yatshashi.
