On this page, I will introduce about the weather in Hokkaido in November. Beautiful autumn leaves were seen in October, but leaves fall from the deciduous trees in November. Full-fledged winter will come. Please prepare enough winter clothes before you leave for Hokkaido.
Weather in Hokkaido in November (overview)
In Hokkaido, although the daytime maximum temperature still exceeds 10 degrees Celsius many days, the temperature in the morning and evening slows down steadily. In mid-November, the minimum temperature of the day will be around -5 degrees Celsius. At this moment, beautiful autumnal leaves are seen in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and so on, in the midst of autumn. However, please beware that the climate of Hokkaido is quite different.
First snow is observed in many areas of Hokkaido in the first half of November. After that, snow falls and the snow melts repeatedly. And, especially around the cold Asahikawa, snow begins to accumulate as early as late November. As it is no longer a perfect winter, if you are not accustomed to driving the snow road, you should refrain from using car rental as much as possible.
If traveling in November, please bring a thick coat etc. It will be really cold in late November, so it would be better to bring a woolen scarf and gloves. Because the snowy road is slippery, please wear snow boots that do not slip on the sole or wear a non-slip instrument on your shoe sole. Snow boots are also sold in Tokyo and Osaka. The anti-slip device is, for example, as follows. These are sold at New Chitose International Airport and shoe stores in Sapporo.[st-card-ex url="https://www.amazon.co.jp/SUPERKIT%E3%80%90%E3%81%A4%E3%81%BE%E5%85%88%E7%94%A8%E3%80%91-%E9%9D%B4%E5%BA%95%E7%94%A8%E6%BB%91%E3%82%8A%E6%AD%A2%E3%82%81-%E5%BC%B7%E5%8A%9B%E3%81%AE5%E3%83%94%E3%83%B3-%E9%9D%B4%E7%94%A8%E3%82%B4%E3%83%A0%E5%BA%95-%E3%82%A2%E3%82%A4%E3%82%B9%E3%82%B9%E3%83%91%E3%82%A4%E3%82%AF%EF%BC%88%E3%83%AF%E3%83%B3%E3%82%B5%E3%82%A4%E3%82%BA%EF%BC%89/dp/B0789XDGXX/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_21_bs_lp_t_1/355-8186211-9247356?ie=UTF8&language=en_US&psc=1&refRID=XTQV29EMXK696DQH4BNW" target="_blank" rel="nofollow" label="" name="" bgcolor="" color="" readmore="Read More"]
In late November, the big ski resort in Hokkaido will start operating. You can enjoy winter sports such as skiing, snowboarding and sledding. Even small children can play snow at ski resorts. Rental services such as ski boards and ski wear are being done, so you should use such services.
