Climate and Weather in Japan

The climate in this country, as well as many other things is special and unique. In winter, the cold winds blow from Siberia across the ocean: they absorb moisture and carry it further - a lot of snow falls on the northern islands, and often it causes real snowdrifts. However, the sun is shining often in winter and the daylight hours are long. The winter is very short, and the ground in most parts is fertile and rich for growing crops.

But summer in the eastern and southern parts of the country is sometimes cloudy and cool, but the Japanese do not take offense: on the contrary, they like cool summer.

Also in Japan, there are heavy rains very often and even typhoons with strong winds: the Japanese adapt to them building stronger levees and other structures. And not so long ago, they decided to try to deal with typhoons using submarines. After all typhoons occur when the sea is warm - about 26 ° C; if it is “chilled” by moving huge masses of cold water from the deep layers, the typhoon will simply not appear. The only thing left to understand is how these actions can affect the state of the ocean and its inhabitants.

In general, the Japanese are “lucky” with their climate: probably its features had a considerable impact on the national mentality. Every minute Japanese can face with an earthquake, volcanic eruption or tsunami, and for them this is a part of life. So the houses of stone and brick are rare in Japan, and light wooden “framing” is popular: they are less destroyed by earthquakes and easily restored.
