Seasons .

The climate of Japan is clearly divided into four seasons, each one full of its own charm. The best season for Hiking is spring and autumn. The climate is mainly subtropicheskiye monsoon. In winter the winds blow from the West, from the mainland, and in summer from the South-East, with the Pacific ocean. Winter monsoons are snow, abundantly drop-in centre, in the North, North-West of the country. Mountains don’t allow the winds to penetrate to the East and South of the country, therefore, there prevails in the winter, dry and Sunny weather.

Japan is striking in its precision and correctness of lines. Neat fields of geometric shapes, neat private houses and even commercial warehouses surprised by its cleanliness. The true opening of the country took place in the mid-nineteenth century, when it ended in voluntary isolation. The world was the most unique images of Japan’s majestic mount Fuji, blossoming branch of cherry blossoms, enchanting geishas, a fierce samurai, graceful kimonos, elegant engravings “ukie”, tea ceremony. and much more. In Japan amazing landscape and beautiful nature. Japan consists of about 6,800 Islands located in the Pacific ocean near the coast of Eastern Asia. What only types of bridges does not contain Japanese dictionaries and tourist signs – chain and arched, and a pontoon boat, cable-stayed and swing bridges, wood and stone. There is even a “magpie” bridge. But to understand what it is, you need to plunge into one of the colorful legends of Japan. She talks about the mutual love of two stars of Bootes and Weaver, are the Heavenly river – the Milky way. But the lovers did manage to meet. They, according to legend, helped the magpies in. They closed their wings and formed a bridge. Since then, every year on the seventh day of the seventh month appears in the sky “magpie” bridge. Truth to discern it given only to the romantic natures. The Japanese have a special love and a very careful attitude to their native land. Poetic symbol of Japan was mount Fuji, the highest peak of the country reaching up to 3776 meters. A large part of Japan is located in a warm climatic zone with distinct four seasons. The Japanese love and feel the nature, and in each of the four seasons they find it a unique charm and poetry. Not accidentally, many of the national holidays and traditions are connected with the change of seasons.
