It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Osaka

Peak Season: April to May; July to August

You’ll want to be in Osaka in April for cherry-viewing season and temperatures that climb to 60˚F, but so will everyone else. Other busy and expensive times include summer vacation (July and August); Oshogetsu (New Year) which lasts from December 27 to January 4; and Golden Week (a series of holidays from April 29 to May 5).

Off Season: January to mid-March; June

Crowds and prices thin after Oshogetsu in January and before cherry season begins in mid-March. Due to the rainy season, June is another slow month. Expect the best hotel rates during these times. Winter temperatures rarely drop below 40˚F.

Sweet Spot: September to mid-December

Autumn is a great time to visit Osaka as prices, not to mention humidity and temperatures, go down (though September is the peak season for typhoons).
