xx Question re: weather/month
« Thread started on: Apr 21st, 2017, 4:58pm »

Hi - I'm planning to start walking around Oct. 15, moving clockwise. I normally like to take a rest day once a week (more or less) and am not opposed to the odd onsen day here and there, so I'm budgeting a full two months for the walk.

If that's the case I should be finishing my walk around the middle of December in Kagawa-ken. I can see the historical weather for previous years, but would like to hear from Henro-san who've been walking that time of the year or people who live in the region to get an idea of what to expect, and what clothing to take.

Thanks - Andrew

Me, too. I've been worried about starting too early this fall (like mid-September), and it being too hot. But now, after looking at average temperatures for different months, I'm worried about it being too cold if I start in October or November. I live in the desert, and while it gets hot in the summer (100 + degrees Fahrenheit) and cold in the winter (around freezing), it's always dry. Will October/November be damp? I'm planning on camping, so am thinking of evening temperatures as well as daytime temperatures.

By mid October you should be past the typhoon season and the next 4 or 5 weeks should be ideal walking conditions. It will rain. A full on wet day once a week and a couple of showery days either side. Later in November cold spells of a couple of days will pass over before it becomes just cold. I found early October a lot hotter and humid than expected.

I'm not a weather forecaster and it could be completely different for you. Expect the unexpected and just keep walking regardless. (unless there is a bad typhoon, flood etc) Good luck with it all.
