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).

Naoshima was a lovely day-trip destination from our port in Takamatsu. Our guide, Aki, arranged for a high speed boat for our 6-member group to travel to and from the island, which was a bracing trip and a great way to go (faster and less crowded than the ferry). We had a lovely day looking at modern art on the island, including the spectacular and very unusual Chichu art museum. Aki was very p...

Yukiko was one of the best guides we've encountered. Not only did she know the city and restaurants and shops well, she was super organized and helpful.

We booked a 1-day tour and had a fantastic experience with Kahoko. Kahoko is not only very friendly and professional, she also patiently answered all our questions. She gave us all the important information about Tokyo and the surrounding neighborhoods with a lot of humor and charm. Without Kahoko we would never have been able to visit all the sights in this short time. She also gave us a lot of...
