About Hamamatsu city

Hamamatsu is famous as an industrial city, especially for motorcycles and musical instruments. It is the home of many world-famous companies such as SUZUKI, HONDA, YAMAHA, KAWAI Piano and HAMAMATSU Photonic.

As Hamamatsu is close to Nagoya and located midway between Tokyo and Osaka, all of the three major metropolitan areas are readily accessible.

The population is approximately 820,000, including 1,045 Vietnamese, 643 Indonesian and 195 Thai (as of 2012).

The climate is relatively mild throughout the year. In winter, it is not so cold that snow seldom falls except for mountain districts. However, it is often windy because of the seasonal north-west wind. A rainy season occurs from June to early July. In summer, we have hot and humid weather. Sometimes the temperature exceeds 35 °C.
