General Information on Japan

Climate in Japan

Climate in Japan varies widely from sub-arctic in the north to subtropical in the south because the Japanese archipelago spreads widely from north to south. Japan has four distinct seasons of spring, summer, autumn and winter.

The temperature can vary widely depending on the region. For instance, in Tokyo, the temperature becomes the highest in early August, lowest in late January and the temperature gap between them is over 20 degrees Celsius. Especially in summer, the highest temperature goes beyond 30 degree Celsius for many consecutive days. Visitors need to be wary of heatstroke as humidity is also quite high during Midsummer Tropical Night.
