The Four Seasons of Japan

The Four Seasons of Japan

From white to pink to green to red and yellow, the beauty of Japan changes in each of its four distinct seasons. As the country spans 3,000 km from the northeast Sea of Okhotsk to the southwest East China and Philippine Seas, the climate varies greatly. The northern island of Hokkaido has short, mild summers and long winters with heavy snowfalls, while the southern island of Okinawa is subtropical. Japan’s mainland experiences sharp differences from Siberian cold fronts on the western seacoast and warmer sea currents on the eastern Pacific coast.

Kyoto: Japan's Cultural Capital


Japan’s Cultural Capital

Kyoto was Japan’s capital city until 1868. Today, it is widely considered to be the country’s cultural capital for its plethora of Buddhist temples, along with its Shinto (an ancient Japanese religion) shrines, palaces, and gardens. During WWII, U.S. Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson, who had honeymooned in Kyoto, demanded it be removed from the list of targets for the atomic bomb due to the city’s cultural importance. In addition, the city was fortunately spared from large-scale conventional bombing, allowing the preservation of many Japanese cultural treasures. Kyoto is the world’s number one destination for kabuki (classical Japanese theater), flawlessly groomed geishas (traditional entertainers), and blooming springtime sakura (cherry blossoms), as well as bamboo forests, sacred shrines, traditional temples, and delicious, traditional food.
