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

Remember:
The climate in Japan in january is very bad across the board.

Most of the Japanese communities face the cold that has already installed itself and characterize the days one after the other. Even if the period is the least humid of the whole year, one can still expect a few days of precipitation that can be seen through snowfall or rain - depending on the region. Aside from the island of Okinawa, which enjoys a pleasantly gentle atmosphere - the weather in Japan throughout January is rather unfavorable.

Northern Japan throughout January

Hokkaido and Honshu, the largest island of the Japanese archipelago, are characterized by cold days and abundant snowfall. It also happens that the sky is covered with a sheet of heavy clouds more often; the beautiful sunny days are rare. However, this abundant snow is the delight of sports enthusiasts gliding over the powder - who arrive in masses at the ski resorts.

The Center of Honshu Island throughout January

Most of the localities in the eastern part of Honshu Island have climatic conditions characterized by mild temperatures and several days of sunshine. Such is why in this region, the weather throughout January in Japan is rather mild - despite the freshness of the atmosphere.

The cities in the center of the island, like Kyoto, are dominated by the alternation of beautiful sunny days and relatively abundant snowfall, favored by the surrounding mountains.

Southern Japan and the Ryükyü Islands throughout January

With temperatures that are rather mild and the alternation of beautiful sunny days with relatively cloudy ones, the climate throughout January in Japan in the southern Japanese archipelago is rather pleasant. However, if wearing warm clothes is important on the island of Kyushu, one can go without such in Okinawa and most of the Ryükyü islands - which have a rather warm atmosphere despite the rain.
