With temperatures hitting single digits and snow blanketing most of the country, a Japan February holiday is the perfect place to wrap up and enjoy some winter fun. With festivals and holidays galore, these celebratory events will keep you busy while exploring the country’s winter wonderland. Many Japanese people celebrate the changing seasons with special holidays that are tied to ancient Japanese folklore. The famous and loved is the Snow Festival (also known as Yuki Matsuri), which typically takes place in February to celebrate the arrival of spring with elaborate ice sculptures and snow-related activities such as sledging and skiing.
Japan's February holidays are a great time to visit, as crowds are small and you’ll find plenty of unoccupied onsens (hot springs) to warm your bones. If you're looking for something a little more energetic than soaking in hot water, take to the Japanese Alps with an experienced guide. The Japanese Alps are a vast mountain range filled with towering peaks, deep valleys and beautiful scenery. From traditional villages to modern ski resorts, these mountains are home to some of the best slopes in Japan.
