  • In particularJapanIn the area, to the northSiberian cold air group(→Siberian high pressure) Is coming up, so strong cold air will come in in winter.This high pressure is dry due to the continental high pressure, so it will be dry in winter in Japan.Therefore, in Japan,West High East LowThe pressure distribution of is called "winter type pressure distribution" and is used exclusively when explaining the winter weather.

  • Of the west high east low type, the pattern in which the isobars run from north to south near Japan is called the "mountain snow type", and heavy snow falls easily in the mountains.On the other hand, the pattern in which the isobars curve like a bag in the Sea of ​​Japan is called the "satoyuki type", and heavy snow tends to occur in the plains.Also, when strong cold air flows into the middle and upper layers, the Sea of ​​Japan (especially)JPCZVery unstable and cold near Akita)Extremely low pressureMay occur.This cyclone is activeCumulonimbusWhen this cyclone lands on land, it causes a great deal of snowfall even on flat ground, sometimes accompanied by lightning and hail.
  • Of the west high and east low types, the "pushing monsoon" type is when the Siberian high pressure has a strong force and the intervals between the isobars are relatively narrow, and the seasonal wind blows so as to be pushed out from the high pressure.On the contrary, when a low pressure system over the eastern sea of ​​Japan develops and the isobars are relatively narrowed in this case as well, and the seasonal wind blows in a way that is drawn into the low pressure system, it is called the "monsoon type of pulling".Furthermore, it is called "mixed type of push monsoon and pull monsoon" when both high and low pressures are strengthened and the monsoon blows.[1]..Nowadays, "pushing monsoon type" is sometimes called "sustained type", and "pulling monsoon type" is sometimes called "instantaneous type". In the case of the "instantaneous type", it often passes around Japan quickly while developing a low pressure system, causing storms and heavy snow (rain) in various places, and the Pacific side of the Tohoku region.Chukyo area-Keihanshin - Sanyo region-Northern ShikokuAlthough it may cause snowfall (rain) even in rural areas, the name comes from the fact that stormy weather such as storms is temporary compared to the "sustained type".

Birth rate

The total fertility rate by prefecture in Japan is generally high in western Japan and low in eastern Japan, and is called "west high east low".[7][8].. This tendency was not seen before 1990, but in 2010, it was pointed out that the birth rate in Hokkaido and Tohoku was declining in the areas other than the Greater Tokyo Area and Kinki, and it became apparent.[7]。2019年の合計特殊出生率では、上位10県のうち6県を九州沖縄地方が占め、中四国からも3県が10位以内に入っており、中四国以西で最も低い福岡県でも1.44となっている。一方で、関東以東では福島県が1.47で14位(同率で5県が並ぶ)に付けている以外は軒並み低く、それ以外の全県が1.40以下となっている[9].

The crude birth rate and the ratio of the young population also tend to be high in the west and low in the east.
