General Information

  1. Climate:In Tokyo, the Japanese capital, the climate is temperate, with fairly mild and sunny winters, and hot, humid and rainy summers. Like the rest of Japan, the city is affected by the monsoon circulation: in winter the northwest cold currents will prevail, while in summer they will be replaced by hot and humid currents of tropical origin. Tokyo overlooks the sea, in the bay of the same name. Given the relatively low latitude (we are on the 35th parallel) and the protection of the mountains (we are on the east side), in winter the currents of Siberian origin are felt little, so there are several sunny days, and usually it's not very cold. However, cold and windy periods, with highs around 5/7 °C (41/45 °F) or less and possible snowfalls, can not be ruled out. Anyway, night frosts are rare and usually light. In summer, hot and muggy periods, with sunshine, highs around 35 °C (95 °F), tropical nights and high humidity, alternate with periods of bad weather, with wind and rain, and sometimes (especially in June and July) nights a bit cool. August is the hottest month, both because of the thermal inertia of the sea and because of the lower frequency of periods of bad weather. Here are the average temperatures.
  2. Currency:Bills come in 1,000 yen, 2,000 yen (very rare), 5,000 yen and 10,000 yen denominations. Coins come in 1 yen, 5 yen, 10 yen, 50 yen, 100 yen and 500 yen denominations. The Japanese yen to dollar exchange rate is fixed at a rated of 112 yen to US $ 1.
  3. Escalator manners:It is an unspoken rule to leave one side of the escalator open so that those in a hurry can pass. In Tokyo, people stand on the left side, and leave the right side open, whereas in the Kansai region, people stand on the right side, and leave the left side open.
    However, escalators were not designed with walking in mind, causing persons to lose their balance when walking up or down, and accidents have occurred between users. In recent years, there has been an initiative to revise this practice of leaving one side of the escalator open, and to hold on to the rail while in use.
  4. Waiting for your turn in line:When you wish to use or receive almost any type of service in Japan, it is a common rule that you wait for your turn in line. It is rather rare to see someone not following this rule. For bank ATMs, public restrooms, or many other facilities that are available with more than one unit at one location, people will still make a line and the person in the very front of the line gets to use the next available unit. It is considered rude to go before a person who has been waiting longer and use the unit even when you are the nearest person to it. Although there is neither legal regulation nor punishment, it is a social rule you should follow to avoid getting involved in unnecessary trouble.
