February, along with January, is the coldest month in Fukuoka. Located on the northern coast of Kyushu Island, Fukuoka is covered by clouds coming from the Sea of Japan, and sunny days are rare. However, it does not snow much in Fukuoka, whereas it often snows in other cities on the Sea of Japan coast. The warm current (Tsushima Current) that flows through the Sea of Japan keeps the temperature from dropping too low, so as long as you are well-protected against the cold, you will be able to enjoy sightseeing in comfort.
