Snow in December?

I will be going to Fukui in the middle of December. Does it snow in Fukui during this time of year? Are outdoor playgrounds such as the one at Angel Land closed? Thank you!

Snow is actually heaviest in January, but December is pretty sure to have it as well, the average amount of snow in December is ~18 inches.

I plan to drive from Kyoto to Fukui and Takayama via Kanazawa in late December. Do you think there will be heavy snowfall along the route?

Not a good idea at all especially if you don't have driving experience on snowy roads.

Heavy snowfall and accumulation reported today affecting many regions in local news, including Hokuriku and Gifu areas, where Fukui, Kanazawa and Takayama are.



Better take public transports instead.
