Enjoy Japanese Summer and beat the heat as the locals do!

Traveling in Japan during the summer is a great opportunity to experience the Japanese culture related to this season. Don't be overwhelmed because it's too hot and humid. There are many seasonal events in Japan during summer - local festivals (Tanabata festivals, Bon dance festivals), firework displays, summer boat cruises, and a lot more! It's very popular among locals to go out to enjoy the night view by water and have summer seasonal food (shaved ice called Kakigori cannot be missed!).

Let's start the tour in late afternoon/early evening to experience Japanese Summer without getting heat stroke. I would love to tailor a tour for you to have the most amazing summer experience in Japan!
