When is a good season to visit Saga?

It is difficult to pick one season because there are many enjoyable sights and attractions all year around. We would recommend autumn as the best season to travel around Saga. There are a couple of sights well-known for its autumn foliage in mid-November. A traditional cultural event called the Karatsu Kunchi is held 2-4 November and Saga International Balloon Festival Fiesta, a sports competition and fun event, starts at the end of October.

I don’t speak Japanese. Is it difficult to travel around Saga?

Frankly speaking, you may find that people in Saga are too shy to talk to you in English unlike people in the urban areas such as Tokyo or Osaka. However, The people of Saga are honest and warmhearted. They will try to help you as much as possible if you have a problem. So do not hesitate to travel around Saga and try to communicate with local people to discover Saga’s charms. Saga prefecture has recently launched a round-the-clock call centre (Beta version until January 2015) which assists you in communicating with local people. Call +81-952-20-1601 or Skype: sagacall_f1 (Calls can be accepted from both within and outside Japan.)
