Japan in November

November is a lovely time for Japan tourism, as the country experiences cooler temperatures with the arrival of autumn. On average, temperatures range from 8°C to 15°C (46°F to 59°F) across the country. While the north, including Hokkaido, may experience colder temperatures, the southern regions like Okinawa still maintain relatively warm temperatures. It is a great time to witness the stunning autumn foliage as the leaves turn vibrant shades of yellow, orange, and red. Additionally, November is generally a dry month with lower chances of rainfall, making it an ideal time for outdoor activities such as hiking and exploring nature. A great way to see the country and learn about its culture with Japan tour packages.
