Gunma is located in the central region of Japan’s main island, Honshu. It shares borders with six other prefectures; Saitama, Ibaraki, Tochigi, Nagano, Yamanashi and Shizuoka. Gunma is best known for it’s hot springs and beautiful montains. Gunma is home to three of the country’s best hot springs. The water from these springs, according to Casinosnavi, a Japanese gambling blog, may bring you both luck and love, making the area a popular Japanese tourist destination.

Gunma and its region, is a popular tourist destination for Americans. It offers a variety of attractions, including hiking trails, ski resorts, and hot springs. In addition, the cost of living in Gunma is relatively low compared to other areas in Japan, making it an affordable destination for tourists.

Gunma’s main draws for American tourists include the stunning Mount Asama volcano, the charming town of Takasaki, and the impressive Kenrokuen Garden. Furthermore, because Gunma is so close to Tokyo, it can be a great option for visitors who want to explore both regions during their trip to Japan.

So when is the best season to visit Gunma?

Visiting the region with my Japanese friends I noted in my journal;

We’re having hotter summers, colder winters, and more unpredictable and severe weather in between in central Japan. This spring, heavy rains ruined crops and washed garbage down the river (which we did our best to pick up). We labeled this particular “dot.” It was nothing compared to the freak tornado that ripped through Tsukuba, the hail storms (marbles and golf balls), and the killer lightning storms that ripped through three prefectures shortly after.

As you can imagine, I would not recommend anyone visiting the area during heavy rain. In fact, the best time to visit Gunma is during the cherry blossom season, which runs from late March to mid-April.

Happy journey!
