Time in Japan
The exact time in Japan is based on the time zones for Japan. We will always try to give you the exact time for Japan. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Japan might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Japan are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity. That is why the time is sent ahead one hour in the spring for Japan, and falls back one hour in the fall for Japan. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Japan to improve its tourism and depend less on Japan's electricity supplies.
