Do You Know? Summer in Japan
In early summer, most parts of Japan get visited by the rainy season - tsuyu (梅雨) due to collision of cold northerly and warm southerly air masses. The rainy season lasts from the beginning of June to mid July, while it affects the islands of Okinawa about one month earlier. Only Japan's northern most main island of Hokkaido gets barely affected by the rainy season. However some sights can be very attractive in rain, especially temples, gardens and hot springs! All you need is the right attitude and rain protection! Check out Koyasan, Hakone and Onsen to start your rainy adventures in Japan!
