Packing List

Overall the weather in Japan is moderately temperate with four distinct seasons of: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn. In the winter (December to February), it is quite dry and it’s common for snowfall to happen in the northern regions. From March to May, Spring hits and the temperatures get warmer-cherry blossom time! Then in June, summer begins where the rainy season is more prevalent. Summer usually ends in August. Finally in Autumn (September to November) it cools down.

Clothes (Fall/Winter):

*Laundry service is not available during the trip. We advise that you should bring enough lightweight clothes to avoid having to do laundry during the trip.
