What's the Weather like in Tokyo in November

Temperature

November means autumn in Tokyo, Japan, with the city's parks exploding with color. The skies are typically brilliant blue, and the maple trees turn scarlet. It's cooler and drier, with average high temperatures around 17°C and much less precipitation. Many feel that after April, this is the best month to be in Tokyo.

Sunshine Hours

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.

Rain

You will find 84mm of rainfall across 12 days, which is significantly less than previous months, but still more rain than parts of the UK like London. The chance of rain will be less likely, but still is a risk so wise to dress appropriately.

Dress Code

You may need a light jacket or sweater after dark, which is after 4:30pm at the end of the month. Wearing layers is a good idea this time of year, as it may be cool outside and hot inside in many places.

Tokyo Hotels in November

Hotel Monterey Hanzomon

Hotel Monterey Hanzomon is a 1-minute walk from Hanzomon Subway Station and a 5-minute walk from the Imperial Palace. It offers modern accommodation with a daily breakfast and rooms with free Wi-Fi. This hotel is complete luxury and is hugely popular - so ensure you check availability.

Hotel Okura Tokyo

Neighboring the Roppongi entertainment district, Hotel Okura Tokyo features an indoor pool available at a charge, 6 restaurants and and 2 bars. It is 550 yards from Kamiyacho Subway Station and 1.2 miles from the Imperial Palace.

Ascott Marunouchi

Situated in the center of Tokyo, Ascott Marunouchi Tokyo is 900 yards from Tokyo Station. Elegantly furnished rooms located on the upper floors boast city views. Free WiFi is featured throughout the property and an on-site fitness centre is available for guests for free.

Bars and Restaurants

Alcatraz ER

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.

Takzawa

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

Robot Restaurant

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!

Things to do in Tokyo in November

Tokyo International Film Festival

Back for the 30th time, the Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) will screen more than 200 films, including some upcoming releases, from different countries. Don't let the "film festival" in the name intimidate you—you don't have to be a connoisseur of art-house films to enjoy the festival. While the schedule and full lineup is still TBA as of this writing, rest assured that the festival doesn't just feature art films

Cheese Festa

The 11th of November is Cheese Day in Japan. Conveniently timed to coincide, Cheese Festa is a two-day cheese tasting festival taking place at Ebis303 in Ebisu. The festival will include a cheese recipe contest, "talk shows", food and wine matching and lots of cheese tasting with cheese producers from around the world.

Hachioji

The ginkgo trees of Hachioji were planted along the streets when the city expanded during the Showa period. The highlight of this festival is a tour of sekisho (old checking stations) complete with vintage pass permits. Additionally, a parade of classic cars from the Showa period and before is planned.
