Climate, temperature and precipitation
Although Japan is a country with four distinct seasons, Sendai (and the wider “northeast” region of Tohoku) has relatively short summers and colder winters. With summer highs averaging 27℃, the city seldom becomes as hot and humid as Tokyo. The winter carries an average temperature of 1.5℃, with many sunny days and little snow.
There is also a rainy season that lasts from June to July, so students planning to come to school by foot or bicycle will need raincoats and waterproof footwear. All students should have warm winter clothes, such as hats, gloves etc. Furthermore, as buildings tend to be quite drafty and usually lack central heating, it can be surprisingly cold inside as well as outside during the winter. Therefore, students will need some sort of indoor heat source, such as a heated carpet or space-heater at their accommodations.
In short, students should bring clothing suited to seasonal weather variations, and they should be particularly well-prepared for the winter cold. Finally, appropriate attire should be brought for special occasions, such as the entrance and graduation ceremonies. On such occasions, many international students wear traditional clothing from their home countries.
