Weather in Japan

Despite its small size, Japan has a variable climate.

Tokyo has a climate similar to New York City. Summers (June, July and August) are hot and humid, while winters are freezing and snowy. Tokyo's weather is best in springtime and autumn; with both seasons offering a respite from the extreme conditions they precede and follow.

Kyoto is very hot in summer, whereas winter temperatures often drop below freezing. Kyoto summers are also humid and virtually windless, with temperatures reaching a high of 104°F (40°C).

Sapporo has a humid continental climate – hot and wet summers and chilly, snowy winters. Sapporo is a former Winter Olympic Games city and can get up to 72 inches of snow (1,829mm) in January alone. Skiing is a therefore a very popular activity in the area.
