Japan: Climate & Weather


Describing the climate of Japan is not easy: The archipelago, long and covered with mountains, does not has the same climate characteristics in the north as the south.

In the north, the summers are short, winters last for months and snow is common, particularly in the West, whereas in the South, the weather is more hot and humid.

At the end of summer, it is not uncommon to suffer the onslaught of typhoons, accompanied by torrential rains.

Autumn brings mild temperatures with beautiful colours in the vegetation: This is the ideal season to visit Japan.

You will probably prefer this season to spring which, despite the undeniable charm of its flowering cherry trees mentioned by all the poets, sees Japanese tourists invading the most attractive places.
