In a word, summer in Tokyo is unbearable, because there is a lot of humidity in Japan. Every summer there are four or five extremely muggy days in which you sweat even when you are in the dark and the temperature does not drop below 25 degrees even at night. I’m envious of the European summer.
How is winter in Tokyo?
It is very good, in Europe, for example, in winter it is very cold, due to the low humidity. On the other hand, in the winter of Tokyo, it hardly rains and it is not very cold. Also, as the air is pure, there are days when you can see Mount Fuji from the center of Tokyo.
Is winter the most suitable season to visit Japan?
I recommend that you visit our country in spring or in Autumn. Spring is mild and the ccerezos bloom between the end of March and the beginning of April. The autumn is pleasantly cool, the leaves of the trees turn yellow and red and nature is very ballas. The bad thing is that it rains often in spring and autumn.
Are the rainy seasons spring and autumn?
In these seasons it does not rain enough to be able to call them the rainy season. There is a rainy season in Japan between June and July when it rains almost every day.
