If you go to Tokyo in April, I think that it will be a pleasant trip. It is the best season of sightseeing that is lined with October and November. Based on the weather data released by the Japan Weather Association, I will introduce what kind of weather is Tokyo in this period. ContentsWeather in Tokyo in April (overview)Tokyo weather in early April (2018)Tokyo weather in the middle of April (2018)Tokyo weather in late April (2018) Weather in Tokyo in April (overview) After late March, the temperature in Tokyo will rise at a stretch. In April, there are days when the maximum temperature exceeds 25 degrees. It's warm, so you will no longer see people wearing a coat in the city. However, there are days when it gets cold at night. Therefore, if you go to see cherry blossoms at night, take a spring coat or a jumper. It is not about March in April, but it sometimes rains. You may as well as put an umbrella in your suitcase. Sometimes it feels hot in late April. In the town, people with a quick heart will wear short sleeve clothes. Every time it rains, the leaves of the trees grow up and the beautiful fresh green season comes.

In Japan it is the spring tourist season from April to May. Because there are many warm and comfortable days, the tourist spots are crowded with people from home and abroad. Osaka is also in a full-fledged tourist season from April. If you stay in Osaka in April, what kind of clothes should you prepare? On this page, I will tell you the weather of Osaka in April. ContentsWeather in Osaka in April (overview)Osaka weather in early April (2018)Osaka weather in the middle of April (2018)Osaka weather in late April (2018) Weather in Osaka in April (overview) The climate of Osaka is roughly the same as other major cities in Honshu such as Tokyo. In April, the day when the maximum temperature exceeds 20 degrees continues. The weather is roughly good. So, you can turn around sightseeing spots comfortably. It is warm, so you probably do not need jumpers etc during the day. However, in the evening the temperature will be lower by 10 degrees more than noon. If you are outdoors at night for the purpose of sight seeing the cherry blossoms, I think that it is better to bring a jumper. At the end of April, the sunlight becomes much stronger. On sunny days, you may not need cardigans etc during the day. However, let's keep in mind that it will be cooler at night. Osaka weather in early April (2018) Maximum temperature (Celsius) 24.9 Minimum air temperature 6.1 Total precipitation 15.0 mm Fine weather ratio 59% Osaka weather in the middle ...
On this page, I will explain about the weather in Hokkaido in April. The weather of Hokkaido is quite different from Tokyo and Osaka. In Hokkaido, snow may still fall even in April. It gets much warmer during the day, but sometimes it is pretty cold, so beware. ContentsWeather in Hokkaido in April (overview)Hokkaido weather in early April (2018)Hokkaido weather in the middle of April (2018)Hokkaido weather in late April (2018) Weather in Hokkaido in April (overview) In April, cherry blossoms will bloom soon in Tokyo and Osaka, after that the fresh green of trees and grass will start to shine beautifully. However, in Hokkaido, cherry blossoms do not bloom soon. On the contrary, in early April, it is sometimes snowing rarely in the western part near the Sea of Japan. Even if it does not snow, morning and evening is quite chilled. I think that you still need a coat or jumper. Of course, winter does not last for Hokkaido all the same. Even if snow falls, it does not pile up. And the days when the temperature exceeds 10 degrees Celsius increases in the daytime. In the second half of April, the temperature in the day rises steadily and may exceed 20 degrees. At this time, cherry blossoms finally bloom. However, it is not unusual to cool down to less than 10 degrees in the morning and evening, even if it exceeds 20 degrees in the daytime. This temperature difference is intense in Hokkaido. So, I recommend that you bring a warm coat. ...
You can enjoy spring skiing at some ski areas.
In general, the Japanese archipelago comes to spring in April every year, but some ski resorts continue to operate in Hokkaido and Honshu mountainous areas. You can enjoy spring skiing. If you are traveling with children, you can try snow playing or sledding at the ski slopes.
Spring skiing is somewhat different from winter skiing. In winter you will play in very cold weather. On the other hand, the temperature is a bit warmer in the spring. Outside of the ski resort the snow melts and there are sometimes little snow on the roads and around the hotel. You may ski while watching the surrounding fresh green.
Even ski resorts often rain in April. You can not enjoy the real snow scenery. Skiware should use rental service. However, you may not need much thick clothing.
Representative ski resorts that continue to operate every April are as follows. There are many ski resorts, but I personally recommend Niseko in Hokkaido and Hakuba Village (HAKUBA 47, Happo-One) in Nagano Prefecture. If you are an advanced skier, and want to enjoy skiing in earnest after spring, I recommend the Gassan Ski Resort in Yamagata Prefecture.

It is also recommended to see the snowy walls at Tateyama
From April 15th, as I mentioned on another page, you can also go to Tateyama in central Honshu to see huge snow walls. Snow walls can be seen until June. If you want to enjoy snow scenery outside the ski resort, I recommend this snowy wall. The official website of Tateyama is the following.[st-card-ex url="https://www.alpen-route.com/en/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow" label="" name="" bgcolor="" color="" readmore="Read More"]
You can see cherry blossoms, moss grasses, and nemophila
Cherry blossoms start to bloom in northern Honshu and Hokkaido since mid April
In April, you can watch various flowers. Cherry blossoms, the representative flower of Japan, will start in Kyushu every year in late March. Sakura blooms in the main cities of Honshu such as Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka from the end of March to the beginning of April.
You can not see the cherry blossoms in Tokyo etc, unless you can make it in time for this timing in a week or so. But it's okay. Cherry blossoms will also begin to bloom in northern Honshu and Hokkaido. If you want to see cherry blossoms, I recommend you to add northern Honshu and Hokkaido to itinerary. Cherry blossoms are blooming in northern Honshu and Hokkaido every year below.
Flowering date in average year
Sapporo around May 3rd
Hakodate around April 30
Aomori around April 24
Morioka around April 21
Akita around April 18
Yamagata around April 15
Sendai around April 11
Fukushima around April 9
Personally, the cherry blossoms at Hirosaki Castle in Hirosaki City, Aomori Prefecture are particularly recommended. The cherry trees blooming in the traditional castle are very beautiful.
Let's go to see grass cherry blossoms and nemophila!
When the cherry blossoms season ends in the main cities of Honshu, this time the shibazakura (grass cherry blossoms) and nemophila flowers are at their peak.
I especially recommend flowers in the following places. Beautiful flowers that can not defeat the cherry blossoms are blooming all over and are superb. If you are planning a trip to Japan during these times, please add it to your itinerary.
Hitachi Seaside Park (Ibaraki Prefecture)
Nemophila is beautiful from late April to mid May. Rape flowers and tulips are also blooming in April. Below is the official website of Hitachi Kaihin Park.
Fuji Motosu Lake Resort (Yamanashi Prefecture)
In the vicinity of Mt. Fuji, the grass cherry blossoms are beautiful every year from mid April to late May. Fuji in the background, a wonderful landscape spreads. Below is the official website of Fuji Motosu Lake Resort.
Let's be careful about traffic jams in popular tourist spots
Many places in the Japanese archipelago are very easy to spend in April. So, you can spend a pleasant time not only in the place I introduced above but also in various tourist spots.
However, there is one thing I want you to pay attention to. It is a traffic jam. Japanese people often travel sightseeing in Japan in April. In addition, since the number of tourists visiting Japan increases year by year, famous sightseeing spots are very crowded.
For example, my friend caught up in a traffic jam when going to see moss slope from Tokyo to Mt. Fuji, it took seven hours to go to the place. If you go to a famous sightseeing spot on a day trip from Tokyo, I recommend that you depart as soon as possible in the morning.
In Japan, elementary school and junior high school are on vacation from late March to early April. For this reason, there are so many families going on sightseeing trips during this period. From the end of April to the beginning of May is the period of long vacation called "Golden Week". Also at this time, famous sightseeing spots are very crowded and please beware.
I appreciate you reading to the end.
