I would very much like to travel to Japan (starting with Tokyo) between 4th August till 20th August. I am certain some of these questions have been answered (so please point me in the right direction) . My mums birthday is on the 11th. So want to celebrate it out there.
If not, can someone help:
1) Is this is a good time to travel to Japan. I heard there are a few national holidays and festivals during this time. I am really into the culture so dont mind this at all. Just want to know if its going to be a good time?
2) What kind of weather can I expecT?
3) The guide says to pre-book tours/trains and flights. Since I want to go to Okinawa, Osaka, Fukouka. Should i pre-book this because of popularity/price/availability during this time?
4) im thinking of climbing mount fuji. is this an ok time to do it?
5)any other advice?
Any tips would be really appreciated :)
