Information

For many Japanese people, September may be a dreaded month.That’s because summer vacation for most schools ends in August. September kicks off a new starting semester. All Japanese adults remember their childhood, and switch into work mode.

Summer is filled with fireworks, festivals, and other events, but there is a fun festival in mid-September called “Jugoya,” or the Moon-Viewing Festival. The unique custom was adopted from China long ago, and on that day, people set out decorations of dango and pampas grass.

Stores that were lively with visitors also take a breath. In September, they set up window displays of fashions for autumn to winter. Visitors, in this first month of the colder seasons, please enjoy Japan’s stylish fashions and shopping.

A final word of advice. There is a period of consecutive holidays in September, and since it’s the travel season, all of the tourist areas are crowded. Make any hotel or train reservations in advance.
