Japanese Love Domestic Travel, Plan Accordingly
No one loves Japan more than the locals. While there are always nearly as many Japanese tourists checked into your hotel with you as there are foreign visitors, there are a few peak seasons of domestic travel in Japan you may want to plan your trip around. These are weeks where everyone in Japan seems to be on the road. Hotel rates are likely to spike during these times as well, so planning your trip around these dates will also save you money.
