Best Time to Visit Kyoto
The best time to visit Kyoto depends on what you like! Kyoto has four different seasons, each with its own special feel.
Spring (March to May) is when the cherry blossoms bloom and it looks really pretty. Fall (September to November) is when the leaves change color and it’s super beautiful too. The weather during these times is usually nice, not too hot or cold. But, there will be more travelers and things might cost more.
Summer (June to August) is hot and humid, but there are cool festivals like Gion Matsuri to check out. Winter (December to February) is colder, but it’s less crowded so you can explore indoor attractions without too many people.
