Across the month, Tokyo usually enjoys an average of five hours of daily sunshine, along with medium cloud coverage which fluctuates between 78% at the beginning of the month and 73% by the end. On average, the sky is mostly clear.
The rain can vary, with some days bringing intense downpours while others bring just occasional sprinkles. Because of the heat, a jacket may be unbearable, so packing lots of fast-drying, lightweight clothing may be your best bet, in addition to picking up a hand fan and umbrella while you're here.
July can be extremely humid due to the rainy season - this can often feel extremely uncomfortable and is vital you book somewhere with air conditioning.

Bars and Restaurants
You simply must try Robot Restaurant - the name is somewhat misleading – nobody goes to this Kabukicho wonderland for the food (think convenience store-style bento boxes). If, however, you're more into disco-dancing 'borgs, battling bikini babes and gilded toilets, this is exactly the place for you!
As far as disturbing theme restaurants go, Alcatraz ER has to be close to the top: a prison hospital recreated inside a slightly run-down office building in the middle of Shibuya's love hotel district, Alcatraz delights patrons with everything from drinks served in urine bottles and syringes to creepy nurse waitresses. The grub is mostly standard izakaya fare, but everything else is more horror than ha-ha.owman
For something slightly more civilized, try Takzawa. The elaborate and inventive cooking is illustrated by a ratatouille of 15 vegetables as a little terrine. In another dish assorted vegetables are harvested from a "soil" of breadcrumbs by the diner. The interior of Aronia de Takazara is petit, with just five tables and enough space for the chefs to freshly prepare all the food
Things to do in Tokyo in July
Many choose to visit the Danjiri Festival, from the 12th-13th July - This is large festival floats ridden precariously by local men while being towed in vigorous fashion around the Hirano area of Osaka before being taken back to Kumata Shrine late at night. An exciting spectacle that regularly draws in excess of 300,000 visitors.
Another to see if you are in town, would be the Mushi Okuri Festical - a group of dancers and drummers, accompanied by flute player and singer, spend all day walking around the town. At numerous locations they stop and perform the Mushi Okuri Odori, an ancient dance asking all the insects to leave the rice fields and go somewhere else. Once common throughout Japan, this dance is rarely performed anymore.
If you want to see a great fireworks display then you will need to go and see the Sumida River Fireworks Display. This is one of the biggest displays of fireworks in the country. So this is definitely one of those places that you need to go to because it allows you to enjoy the fireworks from a country that was close to the developing country of the gun powder that would be used to make the fireworks. So this display is one you will definitely enjoy seeing time and time again.
