About weather
The weather of winter Eastern Hokkaido will be a clear days very much.


It is fine, and fine day with a deep blue sky in opens continues.


Of course we have a few the snowy day, but there is not many it like the Sea of Japan side and an inland.


Anyway, it is cold by radiational cooling very much in the night and the early morning because no cloud in the sky.


In the day time, the feeling temperature is higher than night time temperature, because sunlight is very strong.


Of course, please keep protection against the cold in mind because here is sub zero area (the highest temperature is negative even in a mid day).
and  our daytime is shorten very much in comparison with Honshu.


You should think about what can be active in outdoor from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Because, the sunrise is 7:00am, and the sunset is about 4:00 p.m. around here.


IIt is Hokkaido time isn't is?  Please make a schedule in the best time.

 

 

About clothes between the winter season

Underwear
A polyester-based chemical fiber superior in quick-drying with the top and bottom is good.
Because it becomes easy to lose temperature when you get wet with sweat because dehydration is slow, the cotton is NG.


The thing named the Heat Teck recently, too.

(the underwear here points at the underwear of tights and long sleeves).

 


Shirt & Pants(Trousers)

This will not so have to mind
The beest one is easy to dry.
The inner underwear of the down is good, too.

 


Middleware
A sweater of the fleece or a down jacket  is good.

 

 

Outerwear

Winterization, waterproofing, storm characteristics.
If there is a thing of the top and bottom in moisture-permeable material such as the Gore-Tex, it is the best.


The thing with a few momenta including the fresh-water smelt fishing will have good down, too.

 


Socks
Thick things such as a chemical fiber or the woolen yarn are good.

 

 

Shoes

Protection against the cold, a thing with the waterproofness are good

Pack boots are the best.

 

 

Gloves
You should take them made by Wool, a chemical fiber.

Hat
A thing hiding to an ear is good if possible.

Others
Muffler or neck warmer
Cairo…When there is it, it is warm.

Sunglasses…A fine weather rate is high, and the good reflected heat is hard.
