The climate of Kamakura (Japan)
Kamakura is a popular tourist destination in Japan. The combination of beautiful temples, beautiful beaches (for surfing) and the fact that Tokyo is situated in the vicinity make it an ideal starting point to discover Japan. During the 11th century Kamakura was an important military centre of power. This caused the city to flourish. The many temples and sights are still a silent witness of this period. Among the beautiful sights that can still be admired today are the Great Buddha, the Temple of Hasadera, Hachimangu Shrine, Zeniarai Benten and the temple of Kenchoji.
Kamakura has a warm sea climate with high humidity figures. This type of climate is characterized by rainfall all year round with a peak during the summer months. During these months tropical storms and thunderstorms are not uncommon. Most of the rain falls in large quantities. The winter months are somewhat drier and colder. However, subzero temperatures are uncommon. Unpleasantly high temperatures are not uncommon during the summer. High humidity figures make for an unpleasant and clammy feel.
