Japan is a country where you can enjoy the four seasons. Cherry blossom, sakura attracts not only domestic people but from all over the world in spring. You can swim during summer at local beaches. Autumn coloration are probably much attractive than sakura for Japanese and skiing is popular during winter.
Colorful leaves can be seen many places in Japan but for foreign tourists, visiting Kyoto can be the easiest way to see them. Autumn coloration starts when the minimum temperature reaches 8 degrees centigrade and boosts when it is 5 or less degrees.
The seasons are October in Hokkaido and northern Honshu, from November till early December in Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu. Therefore, if you are planning to visit Kyoto, better to travel between mid November till early December but be aware that there are extremely high number of tourists in weekends.
