What to Wear in Japan during Autumn: September, October and November

Cool coordinations suggested by UNIQLO for Autumn: September, October and November

Are you wondering what to wear in Japan on your next trip? It is a little difficult to find out what the temperature is in foreign countries that you have not been to. Especially, Japan has four seasons with the large temperature difference. Today, I’d like to introduce what to wear and how warm/cold it is in Japan during autumn: September, October and November. Here are also some coordinations perfect for autumn in Japan suggested by Uniqlo, one of the best Japanese clothing brands.

What is the weather in Japan during autumn

Autumn is one of the most comfortable seasons in Japan. Not too hot or too cold. Here, we have the daily average temperatures in Tokyo between 2010 and 2021. Please refer this when you are considering what to wear. If you plan to take a trip to Hokkaido or Tohoku areas, they have a little colder temperature than Tokyo, especially in November.

Average temperatures in Tokyo:

September: 22-25°C (71.6-77°F)

October: 16-20°C (60.8-68°F)

November: 12-15°C (53.6-59°F)

What to wear

In September, only T-shirts are enough in the daytime, but you may feel a little cold in early morning and at night. It’s better to wear long-sleeve shirts or put a jacket/coat in October and November. You would need a coat in the late November. Northern Japan including Hokkaido and Tohoku region gets cold earlier than other areas.
