Japan time now! Time difference from your country

There is only one time zone in Japan. Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Hokkaido, Sendai, Nagano, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Kumamoto and Okinawa are all at the same time. Furthermore, since there is no daylight saving time in Japan, it is not so difficult for you to know Japan time. Japan is now the below time (If time is not displayed, place the cursor on the Japanese part of the map). Please refer to the above time and check the time difference with the area you live in.

If the country is long in the east and west, there are several time zones in the same country, there is a time difference. However, Japan is not so long in the east and west. In Japan, the land extends long in the north and south, but in the east and west it is not so long that it is necessary to increase the time zone to two or more.

The rabbit on this page lives on Ookuno island in Takehara City, Hiroshima prefecture. There are only about 20 humans on this island, but 700 rabbits are there. In the novel " Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", a rabbit runs in a hurry while watching the pocket watch. If you go to Oono island, you might be able to meet such a mysterious rabbit.

I appreciate you reading to the end.
