Tokyo Vacations & Travel Tips

When to Go

Spring and fall are a great time to see Tokyo. The weather is mild and the scenery legendary. If you’re interested in seeing cherry blossoms, you’ll want to plan your trip for the last week of March through the first week of April, but this can be a crowded time at popular viewing spots and other tourist attractions. June and July are the rainiest months, followed by a humid summer. Winters in Tokyo are generally mild, and it snows here very rarely.
