Weather details in march

Depending on the locality, the climate throughout March in Japan can be very mild, as in the case of cities on the southern islands - or even dominated by the cold, like the localities on the island of Hokkaido. In order for personal comfort, dress in accordance with the climate of the destination.

Northern Japan in March

Cover well and opt for warm clothes if planning to visit the Hokkaido Island as well as a few towns located in the north of the island of Honshū. The temperatures are very cold. This makes snow still part of the landscape scenery in the north.

Central Japan in March

Due to the rise in temperature, most of the localities in the center of the island of Honshū are favored by a pleasant and gentle atmosphere, due to the stronger presence of the sun. However, some cities such as Kyoto, are still experiencing cold mornings.

Southern Japan in March

Due to its geographical location, the city of Naha located on Nagasaki, will allow to enjoy a pleasant warmth while on the island of Kyūshū, it will be necessary to wait a few more weeks before the days are beautiful and warm.
