there's also the issue of the Obon holiday period. This is a string of public holidays, where just about every man and his dog is on a plane, train or staying at a hotel.

this year they're expecting the peak Obon travel time to last from August 8th - 16th. The busiest days are usually the first and last days, with everyone leaving/returning. If travelling somewhere during this time, make sure you have reserved seats on shinkansen (free if you have a JR rail pass, only an extra 500yen if you don't).

whoops sorry I don't mean public holidays. It's not an official public holiday period but many companies close during this period.
