January and February are the coldest months, and June and September the hottest. Typhoons and heavy rains occur frequently during the summer.ere


Etiquette and good manners are extremely important to the Japanese people. They do not contradict what a person says in public conversation but instead find a roundabout way to express their opinion in a positive way. Japanese people greet each other with a bow, although they may shake hands with Westerners. It is extremely important that the person of lower status bows lower than the person of higher status and remains bowed longer. One bows from the waist, with the arms straight at the sides.
