winter

Winter weather in Japan is very cold, so people wear thick, fashionable jackets and sweaters. Some regions such as Hokkaido, Tohoku, and Hokuriku get much more snow, but not in Tokyo so it goes to the headline news when Tokyo gets any snowfall. The Winter Olympics in 1998 were held in Nagano Prefecture. You can enjoy a Japanese winter like Olympians during your stay in Japan during wintertime!
