Climate is typical of other Pacific coastlines, having mild temperatures and heavy rainfall.
Summer, there are many rainy days due to the high temperature and humidity levels brought on by winds from the south.
Winter, seasonal winds from the west bring clear weather with low temperatures and dry air. The cold wind called "Enshu Karakkaze", characteristic of this region, blows during the winter months making it feel colder than it actual temperature.
This region also has one of the longest durations of sunshine in the country, and with an average annual temperature of about 17 degrees Celsius, offers a comfortable environment throughout the year.
