Japan is one of the most epic countries to visit on honeymoon.

Most couples will start in the metropolis that is Tokyo, one of the world’s most innovative and fun cities to visit on earth. Foodies will be in culinary heaven, where it’s discovering how to make miso seasoning or eating the most delicious Wagyu beef. Marvel at the contrast of traditional and modern, coexisting in harmony. Are you a sports fan? Then a sumo-wrestling match is an absolute must.

Zip across the country on the Shinkansen (high-speed trains), explore ancient Kyoto with its 2000 temples and shrines and phenomenal dining scene. Wander the alleys of Gion and glimpse the elegant Geisha keeping tradition alive.

Mount Fuji looms large and Fuji-Hakone-Izu National park’s surrounding landscapes are well worth visiting and a much more sombre note, don’t forget Peace Park in Hiroshima.

Despite being an island nation, Japan is less well known for a beach honeymoon, but Okinawa has beautiful beaches with turquoise waters to explore.


The best time to visit Japan for a honeymoon is from March to May during cherry blossom season or in September to October for the autumn changes. June to August can be humid in the cities and June and July bring ‘tsuyu’ or rainy season. Japan experiences colder temperatures in winter from December to February, with temperatures ranging from 5° C / 40° F to 12° C / 50° F
