      In general, Japan’s climate is characterized as monsoonal (i.e., governed by seasonal winds). The main influences are the country’s latitudinal extent, the surrounding oceans, and its proximity to the neighbouring Asian landmass. There are numerous local climatic variations, the result of relief features. Climate: The climate in Japan varies from tropical in the south to cool and temperate in the north.

Spring is generally considered the best time to visit Japan, as the weather is the mildest. Summer in Japan begins in June, and is characterized by a three- to four-week rainy season during which farmers plant rice crops.

Let’s look at how the country’s geography influences its climate.

Its topography dictates to a large extent where and how its people earn their livings, and its climate influences its agriculture and styles of living.
