All this talk about the Green season it is important to note Japan has 4 very distinct seasons. Something you don’t get in all parts of the world and one of the attractions for somewhere like Nozawa Onsen as it is amazing to experience the dramatic changes between each season.
Like most things in Japan it is usually pretty much like clockwork too and the mood, temperature, colours and textures all seem to change when they are supposed to – 4 times of the year. I love experiencing all 4 seasons and the amazing changes that take place in the surrounding nature.
