Japan has been experiencing jishuku, or self-restraint, resulting in the cancelation of various cherry blossom events out of respect for those who are suffering in the Tohoku region.

However, many April events are still on! Please see Events to be enjoyed in April and May.

Some highlights this month are:

Shunki Kagura Sai, Spring Festival of Ise Jingu Naiku Shrine, Ise until the end of April, a display of traditional dance at one of the most important shrines

and

Miyako Odori, geisha dance in Kyoto, which continues until the end of April.

Be sure to read down the list for events in May.

Also, mark on your calendar April 29th, and May 3rd to 5th, which are national holidays, popularly known as Golden Week.
