Climate & Health
Japan experiences summer in the middle of the year, June through August, and winter at the end of the year, December through February due to its location in the Northern hemisphere.
Stretching over 1500km north to south there are 6 main climate zones in Japan. Hokkaido, where Niseko is located, is the northernmost zone and has a temperate climate with long, cold winters and cool summers.
Insurance – Health care provided in Japan is first class. However it can be very expensive for the international travellers.
Medications – The medication may be different in Japan, please don’t forget to bring it with you but you must adhere to the Japanese Customs in doing so.
Warm clothes – Please make sure that you bring warm clothes in winter as temperatures in Niseko can range from 6°C to about -7°C during the months of November to December and as low as -23°C (with wind chill) throughout the rest of the season.
