Nagano is famous for “HAKUBA”. In winter, many foreigners and Japanese go there to enjoy ski.
In summer, many Japanese go to “KARUIZAWA” to enjoy cool summer due to high altitude.
Some rich people has a villa and stay here only in summer.
Japan is a very humid country so it gets really muggy in the summer…

There are rainy season in Japan from Jun to July.
And many typhoon hit Japan from June to October. Especially in August and September.
Most of Typhoon come from south of Japan so most of them hit Okinawa.
That’s why Okinawa has high precipitation.

It’s up to purpose but spring is the best season for tourists
because temparature is comfortable everywhere in Japanand less rain.
Also cherry blossom is so beautiful!
I love spring in Japan!!
