The country has two major airlines in addition to domestic airlines including Delta Air Lines, American Airlines and United Airlines all fly in and out of the country. There are two main airports that most flights go into. One is located near Tokyo and the other one close to Osaka.
There are also several smaller airports for domestic and international flights. The airports are fairly easy to get through unless it is one of the country’s busy seasons such as New Years, Goldman Week which is the end of April through the beginning of May and Obon which is the middle of August. Not only are these times busy but they are more expensive times as well.
The country has four seasons but most of the time tourism is most popular in spring or fall. Spring is one of the best times to visit the country because the temperatures are warm but not increasingly hot and there is not much rain.
Summer normally starts with the rainy season and turns hot and very humid in July and August. Autumn is a great time to visit because the temperatures and humidity are much lower, making being outside so much more comfortable. Just note that autumn is also the time when the country experiences typhoons. If you’re a snow bunny, Winter is a great time for skiing, as the country experiences heavy snow and cold wind blasts.
