Sorakaze Inc. and the Japan Weather Association have released a new app called WeatherJapan. The app supports multiple languages for tourists to Japan.

WeatherJapan is an application of iOS and Android that displays the weather forecast of Japan provided by the Japan Weather Association.

Ahead of the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020, the number of foreigners visiting Japan is increasing year by year. This application was developed for the purpose of wanting tourists to have access to more accurate weather forecasts.

The app features hourly weather forecasts, daily forecasts, weather information for surrounding areas and the ability to search for a location by name.
