From mid-March onward and going into April, it is the Cherry Blossom season, a magical time to visit Japan; hotels fill up fast, cafes and parks are full of vibrant celebrations. May celebrates Golden Week, also a peak time for domestic travel, so advance booking is imperative. The festivals continue in August, a time of local holidays, after a brief lull of June and July.
