The weather is one of the favorite topics of conversation in Japan. This is not surprising given the complexity of the climate in a country spanning 20 degrees latitude.
From the harsh winters and mild summers of Hokkaido to the subtropical climate of Okinawa, there is a great variety in the Japanese climate. Even in the same city you can experience both extremes of weather in one year: Sapporo in Hokkaido can experience temperatures of -10 ° C in the winter, but heat waves of 30 ° C in the summer are not uncommon.
In the main region, summer temperatures are generally between 20 and 30 ° C. In the early part of summer (mid-June to mid-July) there is a rainy season that lasts a few weeks, however, this is interrupted by days of good weather. The rains come back in late summer thanks to typhoons, although typhoons generally blow in one day.
