Toward the end of the month, there are days when you may need a down jacket.
On the Sea of Japan side, in Kanazawa, Toyama, and other areas, the number of days with clouds and rain is increasing.
The weather on the Japan Sea side, Kanazawa, Toyama, etc. is completely different from the dry and sunny weather on the Pacific side, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima.
So be sure to prepare an umbrella and waterproof clothing if you go to the Sea of Japan area.
An extra layer of clothing, such as a thin down jacket is useful in chilly morning and evening.
