||The climate in Japan changes
depending on where you are. In Northern Japan, it is bitterly cold
and they have a huge ice festival every year, displaying ice and snow sculptures.
In Southern Japan, winter can be mild.
I lived in Yokosuka, which
is about 55 miles south of Tokyo. The weather was very hot and humid
in the summer. There was more humidity than heat, with the average
summer temperature of about 85 degrees. It rains mostly in September,
which along with October is considered the 'rainy season.' This trees
in fall do turn the beautiful colors we are used to in the United States.
In the winter months, we did have snow a few times but it wasn't a lot
of snow. Enough for sledding for a bit and a good snowball fight
and then it would be gone the next day. In Japan, there is spring, that
arrives when the cherry blossoms start to bloom. There are many cherry
blossom trees in Japan.
