November is the most popular season for traveling to Kyoto and the Kansai region. The comfortable climate, as well as pleasant autumn breezes, beckon foreign visitors and Japanese people alike to come and visit. During the daytime in early November, you might get too hot if you wear too many layers, but mornings and evenings have drastically different temperatures, so you should carry a scarf or a light jacket. Also, be wary of sudden showers, which will make the temperature drop. December is colder than November, so you will need a down jacket, muffler, gloves and other winter gear, If you are visiting USJ, remember that it is by the sea, so be sure to dress warmly.
