Until early February is the coldest time of the year.
It is cold on the Pacific Ocean side, such as Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, and Hiroshima, but mostly sunny days.
But on the contrary , snowy days are common in Kanazawa on the Sea of Japan side, Nagano and Shirakawa-go in the central part of the country.
Thick winter clothing and a coat are necessary.
Warm shoes, gloves, and a hat are also important.
Indoors, it may be heated, so layered clothing is recommended.
On February 3, Setsubun bean-throwing ceremonies are held at temples throughout Japan.
