Further Information

The distinctive culture and Japan’s four seasons signify the appeal of golf in Japan.

Spring equates to cherry blossom season and the blossoms bloom over a period of four months beginning in Okinawa in the south in February, and sweep through 3,000km of the country up to Hokkaido in the north. Cherry Blossoms also pave the way for the start of the golf season in these regions of Japan. In Autumn season the vibrant colours of this season can be viewed in Hokkaido in the beginning of October and gradually move south and can be enjoyed up until mid-December.

There are over 2,300 golf courses in Japan and given the natural landscape of mountains and forests and changing scenery, the diverse variety of courses on offer make for a fascinating golf destination. Also there are many famous sites and historical spots in regions around Japan that symbolize time-honoured, valued aspects of Japanese culture.

The climate and culture of each region has meant the regional cuisine and wide variety of specialities is another delightful discovery in a golfing experience in Japan. Sushi, tempura, soba noodles are amongst some of the favourites that make Japan’s golf courses renowned for first rate meals which are an integral part of the game in Japan.

Japan is a land of volcanoes and as such there are many natural hot springs. No game of golf is complete in Japan without a relaxing soak in the hot spring waters that provide not only relaxation but also health and beauty benefits.

Creating a Tour itinerary yourself for Japan may take more effort and knowledge than visiting courses in resort destinations such as Hawaii and Thailand.
