Weather in Osaka in January (overview)
The climate of Osaka is coldest in January and February every year like other Japanese cities. Osaka has almost the same climate as Tokyo. However, in January, Osaka is slightly colder than Tokyo.
I have lived in Osaka before. At the newspaper company I worked at, I got a transfer order and moved from Tokyo to Osaka. At that time, I felt that Osaka had a lower temperature in winter.
Osaka has less rain in January. It can be said that the weather is convenient for traveling around sightseeing spots. However, it is cold, so do not forget to bring coats or jumpers. If you go out for too long, please be careful as your body will get cold. When the body cools down, let's eat something warm or go into a hot spring!
Sometimes snow falls only occasionally. Clouds coming from the Sea of Japan will snow. It is somewhat snowy than Tokyo. However, once snow falls in Tokyo, it may result in heavy snow, so it can not be decided in general which city is snowy.
