Winter is from December to February. Many flock to the ski resort areas like Hakuba and Niseko in search of fresh powder. If admiring the beauty of cherry blossoms is your thing, go in the spring which goes from March to May. Summer begins in June and ends in August, which makes for an ideal time to spend your days outdoors during their "green season". Autumn ranges from September to November, which would be the best time to visit temperature-wise and you can watch the vibrant colours of the leaves change as winter approaches. The weather tends to be cool and dry with minimal rainfall.
