Geography & Climate
The City of
Misawa is blessed by plentiful nature with four seasons. Its climate is characterized by a winter of relatively low snowfall, although located in the northern region. Also, northwesterly seasonal winds make for many sunny days in the winter. The warm spring and summer months are known to bring in “sea fog” due to easterly winds (known as Yamase). Another characteristic during these months is the long rainy season normally set in June, which seems to shorten the summer.
