Major Renovations around Japan

Japan's beauty and heritage is in no small part due to its dedication to preserving and maintaining traditional culture, including arts and historical structures. Be it the impact from earthquakes and typhoons or merely the natural passage of time, Japan goes to great lengths to protect its heritage and cultural assets.

For foreign tourists, this inevitably means some destinations in Japan will be undergoing restorative or renovation works at any given time. We do our best to maintain a list of the main restoration/renovation programs below that we feel may impact the visitor's experience to some degree — if you feel something is missing, feel free to let us know.

While every effort has been made to keep the information listed here complete and accurate, we advise to always check the official website for any place or event you intend to visit to get the most up-to-date-information
