The climate of Nara (Japan)
Nara is located in the vicinity of Osaka. It was founded in 710 AD and was the capital of Japan during that time. The very powerful Buddhist monasteries started to interfere in all sorts of administrative and governmental issues. The administrators were afraid of the Buddhist influence and took off to take up residence somewhere else. Many ancient buildings and temples can still be admired today. Several ancient Buddhist monasteries and adjacent gardens can still be visited. Once every year the Omituzuri festival takes place. The monks have executed these rituals at the Todaiji Temple for 1250 years. With fire a true spectacle takes place.
Nara has a moderate sea climate with warm or even hot summers and high humidity figures. Subzero temperatures are uncommon because of the influence of the sea. Summers can be clammy.

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
