Spring Wear in Japan! What should you wear?

If you are planning a trip to Japan during the (March, April, May), what clothes should you wear to travel? Actually, Japanese people often worry about what clothes to wear in . After all, the temperature will gradually warm up at this time, but it may get cold. Japanese people listen to the forecast for the day every morning, and often go out with a coat if it is getting cold. If you come to Japan in the spring, I would recommend that you prepare including clothing on the top as well as in the cold . On this page, I will introduce you helpful information about clothes when you travel in Japan in spring. I also prepared photographs of spring clothes below.


You should also prepare a thin outer jacket and wear it when it's cold.

Even if you say "spring" in a word, in March and May, the clothes you wear vary considerably.

In March, there are still as cold days as winter, so during travel you should bring a thin coat (spring coat) or a jumper. Especially at night it may be chilled, so please be careful.

Also in April, if you eat or drink while watching cherry blossoms like the Japanese at night, prepare a thin coat or jumper and go out. Instead of a coat, you may wear a scarf around your neck, etc.

In May it will be a lot of warm days, so you may already have a short sleeve shirt. However, there are cold days in May and June too. Especially on rainy days, let's go out with a thin jacket.

If you plan to travel in a relatively low temperature area such as Hokkaido or the highlands of Honshu, jumpers etc are indispensable. When going to such an area in March, please have the same clothes as winter. Please do not forget thin jacket even  in April and May.
