A Guide for the Weather
Traveling through Japan's Four Seasons
Spring in Japan is a remarkable season loved by the local Japanese people and international travelers alike. People come for the cherry blossoms enhancing the beauty along every tourist destination while the mild weather makes the days just right. On the other hand, a Winter holiday in Japan is marked with chilly temperatures, with some regions even experiencing heavy snowfall to make any winter sports athlete jealous. Alternatively, Japan's summer heat is a time to wear light t-shirts and enjoy the numerous fireworks, festivals, and flavorful foods. No matter the season, it's quite clear Japan is a country with four distinct seasons.
As fun nice as the seasons are, travelers may want to reconsider what to pack depending on when they travel. I once had a friend who thought, because Japan is an island country, that the weather would be quite pleasant even during the winter. She spent the majority of her two weeks wearing every jacket she had to stay warm. Though besides that, she still had an excellent time. Still, the dedicated travel specialists of Japan Deluxe Tours want to make sure everything goes right during your trip, so we've put together this nifty guide on recommended clothes to wear depending on the country's weather.
