Kyoto is a pleasure all seasons and all weathers.
Kyoto has a temperate northern hemisphere climate with clearly defined seasons and predictable weather patterns. April heralds a warm spring full of excitement for celebrating much cherished cherry blossoms.
Innumerable green hues in temple areas offer respite from summer heat. Autumn brings bright reds and yellows that harmonize with the historic monuments from October to December.
The silence brought by an occasional dusting of snow is said to be the best way to appreciate Kyoto during winter.
