The climate of Kumamoto (Japan)
Kumamoto is a large city with a population of about 1.5 million on the island of Kyushu. The most important sight in the town is the Kumamoto castle. This extremely well defensible castle can still be admired in its original state. Some parts were torn down after a siege that took 53 days. A special dish originates from this siege: basashi. Nowadays this raw horsemeat is seen as a delicacy. Kumamoto has a warm sea climate. This type of climate is characterized by rainfall all year round with a peak during the summer months. Most of the rain falls during heavy thunderstorms. During the autumn typhoons are not uncommon. Winters are mild with subzero temperatures only during a few days. Snow is very uncommon in Kumamoto. Summers are warm. The high humidity figures are responsible for an unpleasant feel.
