Weather details in december

With the weather conditions characterized by cold days and snowfall, winter is well established throughout the territory of Japan. Depending on the locations, the temperatures can be very low or relatively mild. Still, the climate throughout December in Japan is no longer favorable to outdoor activities except for skiing.

Northern Japan in December

Expect snowfall every other day! With temperatures ranging from -5° C to zero, the days within December are very cold in most of the localities in the north - in Sapporo particularly. Moreover, days with beautiful sun are rare because the weather throughout December in Japan in this region is dominated by gray and cloud.

Central Japan in December

Freshness characterizes the climate in central Japan. Therefore, whatever the destination, expect very cold mornings. Even if over the hours, a slight rise in temperature is noticed, the wearing of comfortable clothes is always advisable because it is cold despite the beautiful sun.

Southern Japan in December

In southern Japan, temperatures rarely drop below 5° C, but due to the relatively abundant rain, the weather is also bad.

Where should you go in Japan in december when it comes to the weather?

Remember:
The climate in Japan in december ranges from tolerable to very bad depending on the region and city.

warning in december the weather is different depending on the city and regions of the country.

That month is not the best month to travel to in Japan. The weather in Ishigaki-jima, Naha (Okinawa), Yakushima, Kamakura and Kagoshima (Kyushu) is just ok. The sun is not there all the time and you may be faced the rain frequently. However, if you don't plan a pool and sun travel in Japan but rather discovery of heritage, this climate may be enough. In addition, there are definitely fewer tourists at this time.

But it is finally better than in Hakone, Izu, Niigata, Osaka, Karuizawa, Yokohama, Kitakyushu, Kobe, Sendai (Honshu), Nagano-shi, Hiroshima, Kanazawa, Nagoya, Nagasaki, Hakodate, Matsue, Shikoku, Nara, Kochi, Aomori, Sapporo (Hokkaido), Kyoto, Tokyo, Nikko, Fukuoka and Kumamoto and surrounding areas where the climate is very bad. It is not advisable to visit these areas in december.
