Summer in Japan

The gentle rhythm of wind chimes on a sunny day, beautiful green forests, enchanting water-lotus flowers, summer festivals, gorgeous summer kimono outfits…

There are so many things to love about the warmer months in Japan.


Just as you would expect from a nation so passionate about food, summer cuisine in Japan is delightful. From the delectable sweet wagashi confections, the sumptuous multi-course meals served at the traditional inns, the sweet ayu river fish barbecues, flowing chilled noodles, or the eye-popping Japanese street food at summer festivals, you will want to try it all!
