Japan hot in summer and autumn?

Recommended Posts

I will be in Japan in late summer, September actually. For a country that seems to get tons of snow, it's hard to believe it can get so hot - but that's what I have heard. What's the deal then, anyone kind enough to let it be known?

September is still very much summer in most parts of Japan. It doesn't usually start getting properly cool till mid-October. The first time I went snowboarding this year was in late November. In September, you can expect temperatures in the 30s and humidity of 80% - luvly.

 

In Nagano, from September, the evenings can be quite cool, but in big cities, expect to sweat all day and all night.

...winter on it's way

The worst time for me is June - World Cup time. Hot and sticky and wet, the rainy season. How is the World Cup gonna be with these kind of conditions?
