Winter in Japan is from December to February. In the coastal plains, the temperature rarely drops below zero while southern Japan enjoys a relatively mild and pleasant winter. Central and northern Japan can receive a lot of snow which makes for excellent winter sports.
Spring in Japan is from March to May and offers a generally mild climate. Many suggest that this is the best time to visit as there is not much rain. Also, March and April bring the cherry blossoms that Japan is famous for and the whole country seems to be engulfed in pink.
Summer in Japan is from June to August and begins with a 3-4 week rainy season. The rainy season may be inconvenient but it does not really affect travelling much. July and onwards are very hot and humid with temperatures reaching as high as 40˚C (104˚F). Typhoons or tropical cyclones can happen in August and September and result in strong winds and heavy downpours.
Autumn in Japan is from September to November and can be fairly mild. Autumn is characterized by a light breeze and cool temperature that is welcome after the heat of the summer. Like Spring, Autumn is also a good time to visit Japan.
