“WeatherJapan”: A Weather Forecast App for Foreigners

sorakaze Inc.

WeatherJapan is a free weather forecast app with multilingual support. This app is designed for foreigners visiting Japan for tourism and business. It is provided by the Japan Weather Association and sorakaze Inc.

What’s unique about WeatherJapan is that it provides weather forecast information in a simple format that’s easy to understand for foreigners. The hourly forecast function, which is available for the next 48 hours, displays temperatures with a graph and gradations, allowing users to visualize these changes. Users can access this information for their current location as well as destinations and nearby areas using the forecast map. In addition, changing the display to the area listing mode makes it easy to search for the weather forecast by place name.

A total of 11 languages are supported: English, Chinese (simplified and traditional), Korean, Italian, Spanish, German, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Japanese. Temperatures can be displayed in either Celsius or Fahrenheit, so it is also ideal for foreigners living in Japan.
