I don't have much evidence that Japanese warfare was seasonal. Campaigns like the Thirty Eight Year war went on for a long time! However many famous battles such as the Battle of Koromo River and the Hogen Rebellion seem to have taken place in the summer. If nothing else, moving armies around in a seasonal climate with very little infrastructure and generally horrible roads, must have been very difficult in winter.

Thanks Spirit of Water! Yes, you are right . I am sure I've read that there were a number of ceasefires in historical Japanese wars, sometimes lasting for several years. I'm struggling to find evidence to back that up though!
Glad you are enjoying it, thanks for the comment :)

I thought I heard once that war used (at least somewhat) to stop during the wintertime. It wasn't over, just a weather-induced ceasefire until it got warmer. I don't know if that carried over to Japan or not, though, or how widespread it was.
Keep up the good work! :)
