What is the weather in Japan in summer

You feel hot rather than warm throughout the summer in Japan especially in July and August. Rainy season begins from around the end of May and lasts till the mid July, generally. During the rainy season, it doesn’t rain every day but always humid and dull. After it ends, the high temperature is approaching the peak in August. Many people suffer heatstroke in the season, so please take care to avoid direct sunlight and drink much water. You will wear less clothing, so don’t forget to use sunscreen.

The weather also depends on where you go like north or south in Japan. It is calmer in the north part of Japan such as Hokkaido and Tohoku Region and much hotter in the south like Okinawa and Kyushu Region.

Here, we have the daily average temperatures in Tokyo during summer between 2010 and 2022.

What to wear in Japan in summer

Summer is the hottest season in Japan, nevertheless, there is a large temperature gap depending on the conditions. You may feel a little cold in early morning and at night or on a rainy day in June while really hot in the daytime. It’s highly recommended to put a light cardigan on over your T-shirt in June. You will always travel in Japan in extreme heat and just a T-shirt or a one-piece is enough in July and August. Please be noted that it is too much air-conditioned inside some stores and restaurants where you may feel too cold. Anyway, get reassured by carrying around a light jacket or cardigan to protect yourself against the air-conditioning places.
