What to wear and bring?

In early March

It is appropriate to put on soft and close-fitting warm clothing in the alternating weather. Always keep your legs and feet warm. Keep winter clothes handy in this time when people are susceptible to illness.

In mid-March

People can finally follow their hearts in the choice of clothing. Various fine knits, jackets, long coats, sweaters, shirts and pants or leggings will bring forward a refreshing appearance. Rain gear and waterproof shoes can be used on rainy days.

In late March

People may catch a cold in the quickly changing weather. So it would be best to bring along appropriate cold medicine. The temperature differences in a day require a more flexible wearing change between knits, windbreakers or casual suits. Consider applying sunblock cream for outdoor activities on sunny days.
