Climate in Japan and weather forecast - best seasons for visit
Due to the fact that Japan extends from north to south, the climatic conditions on the various islands differ very much from each other. Therefore, a quite harsh climate prevails in Hokkaido. In winter, the air temperature here drops to -20°C. On the other hand, the temperature reaches 30°C in summer. Honshu and Shikoku are dominated by a milder climate due to subtropical latitudes. It is quite warm here during the winter; the air temperature is about 5-7°C during the day. The humidity of the air is very high, in some cases reaching 100 in the warm season.
Atmosphere of Japan: religion and languages
The religious situation in the Land of the Rising Sun is fairly homogeneous. Most believers consider themselves to be either Buddhists or Shintoists. At the same time, a sufficiently large percentage of Japanese believers can simultaneously classify themselves as belonging to these two religious denominations. According to last year’s census, about 92% of the total population consider themselves to be Buddhists or Shinto. The national religion in Japan has been formed for quite a long period. The ancient Japanese firmly believed in the existence of spirits, in magic, and in the magical properties of totems. Up till now, these mythological things are significant for many. In addition, the Japanese have a rather mystical idea of the world of the ancients. They therefore strive to spiritualize any nonliving force. Only according to the basic principles of Shintoism, does each object have its own soul, including stones and objects. The main spiritual principle for every believer should be the desire for unity with nature. The peculiarity of this religious trend is the absence of any specific distinction between good and evil in their scriptures.
