General Japan info

Climate

The Japanese archipelago covers a huge latitude with tropical islands in the south and harsh winters in the north. Most tours take place in areas on the main islands which have a similar climate to Tokyo.

Winters are cold but sunny with occasional snow.

Spring (March to May) brings warm sunny days that are ideal for sightseeing with many seasonal attractions.

Summer starts with the rainy season which is followed by hot and humid weather with temperatures often over 30°C.

The autumn is another pleasant time with many days of unbroken sunshine and comfortable daytime temperatures for seeing the sights.

Most of our scheduled tours are planned in the spring and autumn. At other times we will advise on climate conditions and design tours accordingly.
