But when to go to Japan to enjoy it all?

To find out, read the weather information below.


Japan is an archipelago of islands located in the Pacific Ocean, east of China, Korea and Russia.
Influenced by warm ocean currents and cold currents from the north, particularly from Siberia, Japan's climate is very diverse and changes significantly throughout the seasons and moves from north to south.
During the winter, Siberian currents significantly cool the climate throughout Japan, causing snow to fall over much of the country.
In the north, winters are much harsher and longer, with heavy snowfall especially in mountainous areas, while summers are short and mild. In central Japan winters are short and summers are hot and humid. In the southernmost islands on the other hand, winters are mild and summers are longer but very humid.
The rains begin to fall as early as May in southern Japan, moving to the rest of the country in June and continuing through July, with possible typhoons developing between August and October. Although winters are very harsh, especially in the north, they bring sunnier and drier days than in other seasons.
In essence, the best time to travel to Japan is early spring or late autumn

. When rainfall is not abundant and temperatures are much more acceptable than the cold winter or the hot and very humid summer.
