Japan is also well-known for its four seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter.

If you are planning to have a trip in Japan, the season is one of the factors you have to consider. There is always something to look forward to anytime of the year. Japan is amazingly beautiful all-year round but if you live in a country which has fewer than four seasons, this is the best country to visit. The gradual change of the weather in Japan has a great impact to the increasing number of tourists every year.

SUMMER

In summer, the surroundings – streets, parks and gardens turn from baby pink to green. The humidity in this season is very high so you are likely to sweat if you go out even for just a couple of minutes. It doesn’t mean you just stay at home all day long, instead you can enjoy the warm weather outside and you there’s no need for you to wear heavy coats so you can move freely. For those who come from tropical countries, this must be the most convenient season for you. You can visit more outdoor tourists’ spots without suffering from the coldness of the weather. There are some skyscrapers and big tress all over Japan so it’s not so difficult to find a shade under the heat of the sun.

WINTER

This is the time of the year when you need to pack a bigger luggage because the temperature could drop below zero. It rarely snows in Tokyo but it could get so cold up to the freezing point. If you want to see snow and enjoy skiing or snowboarding, you can go to the northern part of Japan. During this season, you can see almost everyone wearing a mask but it doesn’t mean they are severely ill. It serves as their protection against the coldness of the weather and sometimes they catch a cold and they just don’t want to infect anyone. The most awaited part in this season in Japan is the winter illumination in different spacious areas from mid-November to early January.
