Weather details in february

Climate conditions are far from ideal for the entire Japanese territory. The cold weather dominates the climate throughout February in Japan. However, depending on the localities, temperatures can be relatively mild or very low - as in the northern islands. It is warmer on the island of Nagasaki, due to its geographical location.

Northern Japan in February

Climatic conditions in February on the island of Hokkaido are still rough, with temperatures below zero. For example, gray weather and abundant snowfall characterize the climate, as they do in Sapporo. Therefore, in order to visit northern Japan in February, the wearing of comfortable clothing is of importance.

Central Japan in February

Of course, the cold continues characterizes the climate of Japan in February. However, contrary to those of the northern island, climatic conditions of most cities in the center of the Japanese archipelago are favored by the gentle presence of the sun. Some cities like Kyoto or Kobe still have a little snowfall.

Southern Japan in February

The localities on the island of Kyūshū benefit from milder temperatures with beautiful sunshine most of the time. Even if rainy episodes can occur from time to time, they do not influence the weather throughout February in southern Japan.

It's even worse in Hakone, Izu, Niigata, Osaka, Karuizawa, Yokohama, Kitakyushu, Kobe, Sendai (Honshu), Nagano-shi, Hiroshima, Kanazawa, Nagoya, Nagasaki, Hakodate, Matsue, Shikoku, Nara, Kochi, Kamakura, Aomori, Sapporo (Hokkaido), Kyoto, Tokyo, Nikko, Fukuoka and Kumamoto and surrounding areas where the climate is very bad. It is not recommended to go to these areas this month.
