Weather in Tokyo
What's the weather like in Tokyo
The best time to visit Tokyo, Japan, is generally in spring or autumn when the country is at its most beautiful thanks to the budding of cherry blossom and stunning autumnal colours. The weather is also great at this time with mild temperatures.
Spring Weather in Tokyo
Spring (March – May) sees a lot of the country ablaze with beautiful white and pink cherry blossom, celebrated with an increasingly popular festival. Temperatures during these months begin to rise and it is before the hot rainy season. Autumn (September – November) sees similar temperatures, which are now a welcome respite from the muggy heat of the summer. The country also now changes into a haven of red and scarlet leaves which contrast strikingly against the deep blue clear skies.
Summer Weather in Tokyo
Summer (June – August) sees the start of the rainy season. The rains aren't seen every day like in some monsoonal countries but when they come they are heavy. The temperature after the rain is generally quite high and can be uncomfortable if you are moving around. Summer also sees lots of great festivals (or Matsuri) in Japan and there are lots of spectacular firework shows going on across the country.
Autumn Weather in Tokyo
Autumn season is one of the beautiful seasons that you can discover its absolute beauty in Japan. The viewing of Autumn leaves is called momijigari in Japanese. Japan's autumn foliage season starts in mid September in the Hokkaido region.The average time for autumn in Japan may vary depending on temperatures. Before you embark on a fall trip to Japan, you should always be aware of the autumn foliage forecast.
Winter Weather in Tokyo
Winter (December – March) is a beautiful time to visit Japan, especially if you are venturing to the ski slopes of Hokkaido or Nagano. These areas are carpeted in a brilliant white coating of fresh powdery snow making the traditional Japanese onsen (hot springs) even more fun to sit in. Nagano is also a great place to visit in the winter because of the resident snow monkeys who appear in bigger numbers at this time of year. Most towns and cities in the northern regions of Honshu island experience some degree of snow but major cities like Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka receive minimal snowfall during the winter months.
Tokyo is especially prone to weather related disasters, including typhoons, heavy rains, windstorms and snow. Also, Japan is a earthquake-prone country – you cannot be too careful of knowing and preparing for earthquakes.
