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).

Junko was a wonderful guide from the start. As soon as I booked our tour, I received a confirmation email with questions about what we would like to do and see and a prospective itinerary. We asked to change one place in the itinerary and she gave us several other ideas we could do instead. We made our tour the day after we arrived so she could familiarize us with the areas and I'm so glad we di...

1 day ago Traveler: Lissette -   Tour Guide: Keiko

We had a great time with Keiko, who showed us around like an old friend. She was pleasant to be with and very accommodating. More than her knowledge of the city and its culture, she shared valuable tips that will allow us to enjoy Tokyo on our own.

“ Tokyo Overview Tour ”

Excellent
1 day ago Traveler: Wendi -   Tour Guide: Taka

Taka was a fantastic guide for two Americans who wanted a whirlwind tour of Tokyo. Taka knew his history of Japan, how to quickly navigate the City, and cover a lot of ground with us. We saw temples, gardens, shrines, the subway system, the shopping districts and ate some great food. He answered our many questions and was a lot of fun to be with for a whole day. We felt we made a new friend and w...

Akira arrived promptly at my apartment ready for the day ahead. He was well prepared and from the word go everything went smoothly. I have been to Tokyo several times and so I was very keen to see the less famous places, having done the well-known ones already. Akira organised the day by combining the kind of things I wanted to do with his knowledge, and I was able to relax, knowing that I c...

2 days ago Traveler: Jordan -   Tour Guide: Hero

We had a great day with Hero this past week. His English is excellent and he knows the Kansai region very well. Even though he doesn't live in Kobe, he took us on a great tour of the city. We asked him to take 5 of us out for a private food and drink tour, and he found many interesting places to take us. I would recommend him to anyone.

“ Tailored tour or Tokyo ”

3 days ago Traveler: Freya -   Tour Guide: Hiromi

Having been given options of what sort of things we could do in Tokyo, we chose to see as much as possible. Hiromi designed our itinerary and led us around some amazing sights. She was very knowledgeable and friendly and took us around on the Tokyo Metro from sight to sight. There were lots of highlights of the day but I particularly enjoyed the Japanese Gardens (my daughter loved the shops). Havi...
