May in Japan! The Best season. Mountains are also beautiful!

The scenery of the fresh green is beautiful everywhere in May in the Japanese archipelago. As I mentioned on April page, flowers of moss slime and nemophila continue to bloom neatly. If you go to a mountainous area such as Shirakawago, the contrast of the fresh green and the snow remaining in the mountains will be wonderful. On this page, I will introduce sightseeing spots especially recommended in May.

Snow melting highlands such as Kamikochi are very beautiful

From April to May, you can travel very comfortably in Japan. The temperature is not hot, it is not cold, just right. And relatively nice weather continues nationwide. Tourist destinations such as Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, Hiroshima are crowded with enjoyable travelers. By all means, please visit various places in Japan.

If you travel a relatively long time, I recommend going to the mountainous region of Honshu in addition to Tokyo and Kyoto etc.

Every year in May, snow melts from the mountains of Japan, and thawing water flows into streams flowing from the mountains. The sounds of the river are very pure. Even in the mountainous areas, the trees are energized all at once as the winter ends. The mountainous areas at this time are very beautiful, so please join the itinerary.

The places I would like to recommend specifically are the following.

Kamikochi (Nagano Prefecture)

Kamikochi is located in Nagano prefecture in central Honshu. It is a plateau surrounded by the best mountains in Japan, the snow remaining in the mountains is beautiful in May. We use trains and buses from Tokyo, and arrive in about six hours. As there are many good hotels, including Kamikochi Empire Hotel, which is very popular as a luxury resort hotel, you can spend comfortably. Kamikochi's official site is as follows.

If you are interested in hiking in particular, I recommend you go to Oze. Oze is a highland with an altitude of approximately 1500 meters, surrounded by 2000 meters of mountains. People can not go by heavy snowfall in winter. Every year in May, the snow in the mountains begins to melt, beautiful flowers  "Mizu-basho" bloom in the vast wetlands. There is no hotel in Oze, people visiting use the huts. The mountain houses are relatively big and comfortable. Tourists can not drive in Oze. People go by bus to the entrance called Hatomachi-Toge and walk from there. Oze's official site is as follows.

The climate is generally good in May, but in late May it will rain gradually in Japan. In June every year, Japan will have a rainy season. Therefore, if you plan to travel in Japan in May, I recommend that you travel by late May as much as possible.

 

I appreciate you reading to the end.
