Festivals and Holidays

Japan is famous for its tremendous number of festivals and holidays spread throughout the year. No matter what season you visit Japan, whether it is spring, summer,  fall, or winter, there are sure to be festivals and holidays you can attend. Seeing the Japanese in their steadfast habits of honoring people and events worthy of respect, again and again, offers a real insight into the national mindset.

Don’t forget to bring your camera, your spare batteries, and your best bowing skills.
