Weather In November


For most of Japan, the most significant drop in average temperatures occurs from October to November. It is also the month during which most of the country will experience the peak of the trees changing colours to many beautiful tints of red and yellow. The daily average high temperature is about 16 C for central Japan (Tokyo). The island of Hokkaido to the north (where Sapporo is located) has much colder November climate with average temperatures reaching near the freezing point at night, whereas the southern island of Okinawa will still enjoy almost summer-like temperatures.

As a reference, here is the average high temperature in November for some major cities in Japan from north to south.

Sapporo, Hokkaido: 8.5 C (47.3 F)
Sendai, northern Honshu: 13.7 C (56.7 F)
Tokyo, central Honshu: 16.3 C (61.3 F)
Osaka, southern Honshu: 17.6 C (63.7 F)
Fukuoka, Kyushu: 17.8 C (64 F)
Naha, Okinawa: 24.6 C (76.3 F)

Rain & Humidity

Aside from the temperatures, the average amount of precipitation also drops drastically from October to November. In Tokyo for instance, the average amount of rain from October to November fall from 197.8 mm to 92.5 mm. The average relative humidity levels also drop and there are fewer rainy days.

Here are the average number of days with precipitation in November for some major cities in Japan from north to south.

Sapporo, Hokkaido: 17.5
Sendai, northern Honshu: 8.0
Tokyo, central Honshu: 7.6
Osaka, southern Honshu: 7.2
Fukuoka, Kyushu: 9.7
Naha, Okinawa: 9.8

November is a month of transition from summer to fall for most of Japan. The trend of the country becoming drier is only true for places on the east side of the country. Cities listed above are mostly on the eastern side of Japan.

Fall and Winter Climate of Western Japan

The western side has a drastically different climate in terms of precipitation and humidity levels during the colder months of the year.

The reason is that during the fall and winter months, weather systems generally move from continental Asia to the east and make their way westward until the hit Japan. The mountain range that runs through Japan from north to south creates a barrier for these systems. The cooling of the air which is forced up in altitude triggers precipitations on the west side of the mountains, and is then much drier to the east.

Cities on the Sea of Japan receive a significant amount of precipitation in the fall and winter and are considered the wet months, whereas cities on the Pacific side such as Tokyo are much drier during the fall and winter.
