Hokkaido Information for FIT
Hokkaido,the northernmost point in Japan, with four distinct seasons.
You'll feel the intense shifts in temperature during the four seasons, with spring lasting from March to May, summer from June to August, autumn from September to November, and winter from December to February. In spring, there will be days when you can wear a t-shirt in the daytime, but since the temperature can be low in the morning and at night, you'll need a long-sleeved jacket or sweatshirt to wear when it cools off. Don't forget to bring cold-weather gear in autumn and winter. The winter cold can be especially intense, so it's essential to thoroughly prepare yourself against it.
Of course, the climate can differ slightly from place to place within Hokkaido, so you should choose your clothing in accordance with the local conditions by checking the weather report before you go out.
