  • -

Hello! I’m an editor from this media site in Japan. Today, I’ll talk about what is the weather like Japan and Nagano in February in 2020.

As you may know, Nagano has many mountains and is around much nature, so the temperature is lower than in Tokyo. However, this was a warm winter, so I think that this coming spring may come earlier than last year.

How much flights to Japan in February 2020

Now, if you come to Japan from Australia in February, the rate of flight would be from $1200 to$1600. Although you may think whether it’s cheap or high depending on your mind, This amount is usual, while from June to September when Tokyo Olympics will be held the rate is possible to be higher than this season.

So then, if you come to Japan around the Olympic games, I suggest that you have better buy as early as possible. Totally, I think February is the best season to visit Japan for sightseeing.

Temperature, Weather in Japan in February

The temperature is usually around 10℃ in Tokyo, while in Nagano it’s some times lower than 0℃ in the winter night. Talking about the weather, also in Tokyo it’s snowing, but this is a warm spring and scarfs also are needed.

In Nagano, although the temperature is like usual situation, this year the amount of snow is less than usual because of aa warm spring, so you may not be able to enjoy playing snow sports as skiing and snowboarding. Instead of that, I suggest you go camping in the mountain. In the winter, the sky is more clear and it’s easier to watch stars

When Sunset and Sunrise in February?

In Nagano, sunrise is after A.M. 6:00 and sunset is after P.M. 5:00. As days are passed, the time of sunrise is earlier and one of sunset is later. Moreover, Tokyo is closer to the east than Nagano, so Tokyo’s sunrise and sunset is a little earlier than Nagano.

Wear, Clothes in Japan in February

I recommend that you wear down jackets when you go outside. However, I’d you like to know that inside the building is usually warm. And then, it’s better to wear clothes which are easier to organize your condition.
