Plain Language Summary: Future changes in the rainy season in East Asia are projected based on massive ensemble simulations of about 100 members with a 60-km mesh global atmospheric model called the “Database for Policy Decision-Making for Future Climate Change (d4PDF)”. Summer precipitation will generally increase in most regions of East Asia, but will decrease over western Japan, where the onset of rainy season will delay and the retreat will occur earlier, resulting in a shorter rainy season.
